Sherborne choirs set to serenade London commuters

Choirs from Sherborne Girls and local secondary school, The Gryphon School are preparing to serenade thousands of passengers for a concert at London's Waterloo Station on the 10th December. Over 100 pupils will be taking part at the busiest station in the country, with volunteers collecting donations from the public in support of Weldmar Hospicecare Trust.

Singing to commuters and travellers at the station, the choirs will be accompanied by a full sized 6ft organ and brass band who will be playing a mix of traditional and modern carols. They will be singing during the busiest hours of the day between 4pm and 7pm.

Verity McLelland, Community Fundraiser for Weldmar said 'This is such an exciting event and Weldmar feels enormously privileged to be part of it. It will be a wonderful treat for people using the station and a great way to promote the work of the hospice movement to such a large audience. Hospice care is often hidden from public view and events like this really help us to raise awareness of the wide variety of work we do whilst also raising much needed funds'

The event has been organised by Chris Loder from South West Trains Network Rail Alliance. Chris said 'We are delighted to be able to support this event by providing complimentary transport for the children coming to Waterloo station to sing. We are looking forward to welcoming the choir and Weldmar's supporters to the station and hope they will raise lots of money for this worthy cause. The Weldmar Hospice plays a vital role in the community of Dorset and we are pleased to be able to support them in this way.'
