Join us to celebrate the power of singing together this festive season, and help keep our life-changing choirs for people affected by homelessness singing well into the future...
We're asking choirs, music groups and singers up and down the country to host seasonal fundraiser gigs and singing events to support our choirs for homeless and marginalised people.
All Together Now! #ATN2017
Singing makes you feel good - it's amazing for your mental and physical health and is simply THE best way to make friends and have fun. We know this. You know this. Now we want everyone else to know this...!
SO...whether you fancy hosting a full scale choir concert, a street busk, a karaoke party with your mates or a simple whip round at choir rehearsal, as long as your fundraising event involves singing together, it gets a high five from us!
Already putting on a festive choir concert? Why not use it to fundraise for us by having a bucket collection at the end? Easy peasy!
Our choirs are a friendly, welcoming place where members who have experienced homelessness, or are otherwise marginalised, can form lasting friendships, build their confidence and get their lives back on track. They become a member of a supportive family, learn new skills and experience the simple joy of singing shoulder to shoulder with good friends. Our choirs are changing lives, one song at a time.
The best thing about the choir is that it's a safe place to be - very welcoming and friendly. I feel at home when I'm here. It's like a family. The singing is great fun, then there's a lovely family meal at the end of the evening. I feel completely confident and accepted here.
Through your amazing musical and fundraising efforts, you will be directly helping our members to shine and get their lives back on track, meaning our choirs can keep supporting people who've experienced homelessness well into the future.
HOW CAN I JOIN IN?
Do you sing in a choir or vocal group and want to put on an All Together Now! concert or gig? Not in a choir but want to join in anyway? No problem!
HERE'S HOW YOUR FUNDRAISING WILL HELP:
- It costs each choir on average £57 per rehearsal to provide our members with a hot, nutritious dinner, often the only hot meal they get all week.
- Just £9 provides a meal for one of our choir members at rehearsal for a whole month.
- £10 covers the cost of travel and food for a choir member on gig days, enabling our choirs to perform regularly throughout the year.
- £150 allows one of our Choir Directors to run an outreach singing workshop to introduce those at risk of homelessness to our choirs.
OUR CHOIRS CHANGE LIVES...
Our choirs truly make a difference and help to lift someone from the circumstances that may have led them to become homeless, setting them on the road to a positive future. Find out more about our choirs HERE
If I hadn't come to choir, I don't know if I would still be alive today...
