HARMONIOUS boys and girls are being called upon to take part in a charity sing-along for a cancer charity.

Marie Curie Cancer Care is calling on secondary schools in Hampshire to take part in its Sing Out for the charity this Christmas time.

The charity is asking the county’s school choirs and music groups to dedicate a Christmas performance to raising funds for the local Marie Curie nursing service.

Marie Curie community fundraiser Sally Sansom said: ‘By singing out this Christmas time for Marie Curie Cancer Care you can help raise vital funds.

‘This is so Marie Curie nurses can continue to provide free care for terminally-ill people in their own homes.’

Marie Curie nurses in Hampshire will be working throughout Christmas and the New Year, ensuring terminally-ill patients can spend Christmas at home with their families.

To take part in Sing Out, schools need to choose a date between November and December to hold a singing event.

The school can decide on the venue and then start practising for the big night.

Registration for Sing Out is now open.

To find out more about how your school can organise its own event, call 0845 052 4184.

You can also find out more information about the event online.
