National charity Heart Research UK is calling for choirs, schools, bands, singers and pubs up and down the country to support its Sing for your Heart campaign this winter.
Research has shown that singing is good for the heart and that is why Heart Research UK has chosen this as a fun idea for people to take on during the festive period and to raise money for the great work that they do.
If you’re a choir, you could book a venue or sing in your local supermarket and donate a percentage of the tickets sales or pass around a collection bucket to raise money to Heart Research UK.
If you’re a school you could turn your annual nativity play into a Sing for your Heart event and ask parents to make a donation or sell tickets.
If you’re an individual who loves singing or in a band, why not put on a gig and donate a percentage of the proceeds.
If you work at a pub or you’re a regular at your local, why not advertise to host a sing-a-long and get everyone in your area together during Christmas week to sing festive songs and pass round a collection bucket. You could host it in the pub, in the car park all wrapped up or on the village green.
Heart Research UK doesn’t mind how you organise it or how you raise the money – the choice is yours. The charity just wants everyone singing for their hearts this Christmas and raising money to help fund the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease.
It’s so easy to get involved, all you need to do is contact Heart Research UK for your FREE Sing For Your Heart kit, set a date and venue to host your Sing, advertise for an audience with posters in the pack, nominate someone to go round with a collection bucket at the event and then send in the money to them.
You can sign up online at www.heartresearch.org.uk/sfyh or call 0113 234 7474 or email email@example.com
And don’t forget – all money raised locally is spent locally on helping hearts near you.
