During the Covid-19 outbreak, we’ve been rehearsing virtually and doing everything we can to keep singing and supporting each other through this difficult situation.
We recorded ourselves singing this song in our own homes, while thinking of the incredible job our keyworkers are doing. Many of our Rosettes are keyworkers. They are our heroes.
Derian House is our nominated charity this year and so with our video, we’re ‘Doing It for Derian’ and raising money for the children and young people at Derian House Children’s Hospice. The charity offers a vital lifeline for more than 400 seriously ill children from across the North West, helping them make happy memories with their families in the time that they have. In honour of our chosen charity you may spot we’ve included some Makaton. The Makaton language programme has been used with individuals who have cognitive impairments, autism, down syndrome, specific language impairment, multi-sensory impairment and acquired neurological disorders that have negatively affected the ability to communicate, including stroke patients.
The current Coronavirus outbreak has had a devastating effect on fundraising. Please help us support our local children’s hospice at this difficult time.
