Combined Schools GLive Lockdown Choir Sing For Charity
Every March the Rotary Club of Guildford District organises a school concert, held at the GLive venue in Guildford, with pupils from four local schools - Christ's College, Duke of Kent School, George Abbot School and Prior's Field School.
This year due to the national lockdown restrictions the concert had to be cancelled, so instead, pupils from each of the school's choirs recorded a version of the Coldplay song 'Fix You' to raise money for one of the Rotary supported charities - Challengers.
During remote learning the pupils managed to learn, entirely on their own, all their parts, record themselves singing and send the videos in. These were then edited into a finished virtual choir. The students who took part from Christ's College were from a mix of vocal groups and year groups.
Please donate if you are able to and even if you can't, please enjoy this brilliant combined schools virtual choir!
All proceeds from this fundraising video will be donated to Challengers who provide inclusive play and leisure opportunities across their schemes in the South East for ages 2 - 18 - places where disabled children and young people can enjoy fun activities and make friends.
