Call for Lichfield and Burntwood people to sing at hospital

People in Lichfield and Burntwood are being urged to bring some Christmas cheer to hospital patients.

Good Hope Hospital is appealing for local musicians and singers to perform at concerts during the festive period.

Esther Jackson, music co-ordinator, said:

“Everyone thinks this is too early to organise Christmas carols, but the patients enjoy the singing so much that we need to start recruiting singers and musicians are early as possible to fill all the slots. We’re looking for individual singers and musicians, groups and choirs – anyone who wants to sing for the patients.

“Performing on the wards for patients and in the reception areas is a really rewarding experience, the patients and their visitors really enjoy it and many patients join in when they can.”

To volunteer for the hospital’s music programme, either at Christmas or during the rest of the year, contact Esther  on 0121 424 0113 or email
