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

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

Choir leader Jan Moll led the show, which included a Christmas medley.

‘We’re all local people and it was great to be able to perform in the 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. 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 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.

Rehearsals are currently taking place for an exciting mass performance, due to take place in London’s O2 Arena next summer
