S13 Does Glee 2013

This was a project to remember for so many reasons. We partnered with City School working with young people with low confidence who were all going through a difficult time. We wanted to engage them with a project that would help to build on their self-esteem and show them that anything was possible. How did we do it? Through the joy of singing! We approached the local Police station and recruited a police/fire choir, we partnered with Brunswick retirement village and worked with their existing choir and we formed a youth choir at the Salvation Army building in Woodhouse Village. We ran an incredible night in Brunswick community hall and over 200 people came to show their support, whether it was Police and Fire men and women singing Johnny Cash’s burning ring of fire, the youth choir’s rendition of Don’t Stop Believing or the retirement choir singing Westlife the event brought the community together raising over £400 for a local charity, Amy’s House Foundation.
