Shoppers at Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth were entertained by the sound of scores of Rock Chior voices.

Group members from Portsmouth, Chandler’s Ford, Swanmore and Winchester performed in aid of the charity Youth Options.

Local Rock Choir leader Jan Moll led the show, which included a specially arranged Christmas medley.

‘We’re all local people and it was great to be able to perform in the local community in support of such a great cause’ said Jan.

‘So far this year we’ve helped raise over £450,000 for charity through our performances and membership events. Youth Options helps children and young people gain confidence and reach their full potential, and I’d like to thank everyone who kindly made a donation.’

Rock Choir is the UK’s largest contemporary choir with more than 16,000 members in over 240 locations.

The local group’s performance came at the end of a busy year. In March, they staged a flash mob in Gunwharf Quays in aid of Sport Relief. In June they helped achieve Rock Choir’s third Guinness World Record for ‘the largest song and dance routine across multiple venues’, also helping to raise over £11,000 for the charity Refuge.
