In the eight years in which our team collected prior to the formation of UK Charity Aid in spring 2011, all our events featured singing. With the help of Wigwam Acoustics of Great Harwood and our sponsors, United Press, we purchased amplification gear and volunteer singers performed in the streets and in shopping centres as the central attraction of each collection. The singing provided a focal point for each collection and singing events raised far more than normal collections.

Most performers at our events are usually keen amateurs, or they are professionals who will donate some of their time and talent to helping raise cash for charity. If you know any performer who can consider helping us please ask them. We do not discriminate in terms of ability. Keenness is the only requirement.
