We are delighted to announce the GREAT NEWS that we are all set to run a virtual fundraising event – we are planning Leicester Sing For Water 2021!
Get your ticket for the Leicester Sing For Water concert here.
We plan to get together on Zoom and share an hour and a half of music – including some singing ourselves lead by our brilliant choir leaders, and some music recorded by musicians who have supported us in past live events. We can’t mix our voices on Zoom because of the time lag, but we will be able to sing together with the backing tracks, and share our love of singing in that moment in time, raising money for a cause we all hold very dear. We will sing four songs: Long Walk to Freedom, The River, Pokarekare Ana and Sangena Thina.
Anyone who enjoys singing is welcome to join in this event, raising money for WaterAid. If you are in a choir, please invite everyone in your choir to join the project and learn the four communal songs together! If you register, you can download the scores and rehearsal mp3s on this website. Then you can listen, choose the part that best suits your voice, and get practising so that you have a great time singing on the day.
We have four wonderful choir leaders who are giving their time and sharing their skills with us on the day, and each has agreed to run a virtual practice session before the day, each leading one song – all the details for the rehearsals are here.
Raising Money for Wateraid
We hope that each of you will raise a donation for WaterAid. A goal of £30 per singer would be wonderful, but whatever you manage to raise will be appreciated. In the past singers have collected donations through sponsorship or another form of fundraising. See the Money Matters page for further details.
And Why Are We Doing This?
Because there are still far too many children dying of waterborne diseases – and far too many people living without access to clean water, sanitation, or health education. Let’s get going, raising money, practising songs and making it a great event in 2021 to change the lives of people in Malawi through the WaterAid projects there!
Many thanks for all your vital help,
Audrey, Cee, Ciaran, Dawn, Kim, Maggie, Mary, Rob and Veronica
