Rock Choir concert on Hunstanton’s Green raises £1,640 for RNLI





A green space in Hunstanton was turned black and gold last Saturday as 200 Rock Choir members sang for Hunstanton RNLI.

Members of the choir, who are nicknamed “Rockies”, from all over the Eastern region – including Norfolk, Suffolk, Northants and Cambridgeshire – were led by Sally Rose and Dave Easter as they entertained the large crowd who had gathered.

The concert raised vital funds for Hunstanton RNLI, with the choir having now gathered a total of £1,640 for the cause.

Rock Choir leader Sally said: “Everyone had a brilliant time - both the Rockies and crowd loved it.

“It’s always an honour to raise vital funds for charities in our communities so a huge thank you to the public who gave so generously.

“It was lovely to meet Rock Choir members from other parts of the UK, who had come on holiday to Hunstanton and saw we were performing so came along to support us.”

The award-winning Rock Choir delivers its song repertoire all across the UK, with all 30,000 members learning the same songs at the same time.

Any Rock Choir member can attend any session anywhere in the UK by walking into any choir rehearsal and be taught in sync with the rest of the country. Rock Choir is located in more than 400 communites across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Sally has just completed her first year as Rock Choir leader for Downham, Lynn, Swaffham, Wisbech and Peterborough.

She said: “It’s been an absolute joy delivering the Rock Choir repertoire, it’s fun and uplifting and I’ve seen how it can change lives for the better.

“The new term starts next week and I would welcome any new members to come along for a free first session.

“You don’t have to sing alone, you don’t have to audition or read music. Do something for you and come along, make some new friends and experience why Rock Choir is more than just a choir and remains the most exciting award-winning contemporary choir of the UK.”
