Welcome to Leicester Sing for Water 2017!
This year's event will take place at the Leicester Riverside Festival on Sunday the 4th of June in Bede Park, Leicester.
There are still far too many children dying of waterborne diseases – and far too many people living without access to clean water or sanitation. This year we are collecting money for the Oromia Region of Ethiopia. In this new project, WaterAid's aim is to reach more than 35,000 people with safe water and more than 8,800 with improved toilets by 2018. Let's get going, raising money, practising songs and making it a great event in 2017!
Choirs will perform songs from their own repertoire and join together to sing Love Call Me Home, Beyond the Sea and Morena, directed by Una May Olomolaiye. Teaching materials will be available from your choir; or register for access to the downloadable resources on this website.
It’s hoped that each singer will donate at least £30 to WaterAid through sponsorship or other form of fundraising. This will be sent to WaterAid by each participating choir.
No time to join a choir? Download the teaching materials and sponsor form, and learn the three communal songs. Bring a cheque for at least £30 made out to WaterAid with your sponsor form to the morning rehearsal; if possible get your sponsors to tick the gift aid column as this adds to your donation. Or use JustGiving to collect donations on line.
In addition, volunteers will collect donations from the audience during the stage performance and the busking sessions in the park.
Non-singing volunteers are also needed. Email us and sign up to help collect donations from festival goers on the day. More information will be sent to you.
Many thanks for all your vital help,
Cee, Ciaran, Dawn, Javid, Kim, Lizzie, Maggie, Tom and Veronica,
