My story

[p]In April 2020, the BUSKERTEERS CHOIR launched a viral video campaign to raise money for NHS Charities Together during the nationwide lockdown. By asking for a very small donation from a lot of people, we managed to raise over £30,000 for the NHS.[/p][p]Our ‘Stand By Me’ video campaign was noticed and supported by all of the big national newspapers and the BBC.[/p][p]On VE Day 75, BUSKERTEERS CHOIR was invited by the BBC to create a bespoke virtual choir video to mark the occasion. The performance was aired on BBC One’s ‘HealthCheck UK’. On the same day that the show aired, I noticed a TV performance from the D-Day Darlings and thought it would be a nice idea to collaborate together.[/p][p]I did suspect early on that Remembrance Sunday celebrations wouldn’t be as they have been in the past and that the poppy appeal would likely be affected as a result of COVID-19.[/p][p]I decided to reach out to the D-Day Darlings to see if they would collaborate with us on a brand new virtual choir fundraising project to support the Royal British Legion during this difficult time, as it means so much to the BUSKERTEERS CHOIR members, the D-Day Darlings and the UK as a whole.[/p][p]Fortunately, they said ‘yes’![/p]
