If you ever needed proof that singing brings people together, just take a look at HEY Let’s Sing, the Hull and East Yorkshire NHS choir.
Formed out of the All for One group of choirs, HEY Let’s Sing is a workplace choir created for NHS staff in Hull and the wider region. Anyone working for the HEY NHS Trust can join, and with no auditions and no previous experience necessary it’s truly open to all. Doctors, nurses, cardiologists – as long as you’re saving lives in Hull, you can join.
We joined them for a rehearsal in Hull to meet co-founders Lucy and Bonnie, as well as Musical Director and founder of All for One Helen Garnett (head of Britain’s Got Talent’s Garnett Family) to find out why the choir makes such a difference to the lives of its members.
