Bourne and Stamford singers sought for Peterborough show in aid of Prostate Cancer UK and Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice




If you enjoy a good sing in the shower, voices are being sought for two singing projects culminating in a big live performance in aid of charity.

Organisers are looking to sign up around 40 men and 40 women - no formal singing experience needed - for the Men United in Song and Sing for Life 2021.

Men United is raising money for Prostate Cancer UK, while the women’s Sing For Life project is in aid of the Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice.

There will be a 10-week pop-up singing programme from September, working towards a live performance at Peteborough venue, The Cresset, on Friday, November 12.

“Sing for Life is not about finding the next Adele; it’s about helping ordinary women find their voice,” said project director William Prideaux.

Ellie Slann, of Stamford, was among those picked to perform last year.

"Being part of Sing for Life improved my confidence in more than just music," she said.

"Being able to progress my singing with the help of such an experienced team was hugely rewarding.”

Stuart Holmes, from Bourne, meanwhile, was picked to show off his vocal range for the Men United group.

"It was great fun," he said.

"I met some great people that I still keep in touch with, and performing at the end in front of friends and family was amazing."

Introductory sessions for Men United will be held at the John Mansfield Campus, in Dogsthorpe, on Wednesday and Thursday September 8 and 9, and Saturday, September 11.
