SHOPPERS at a hardware store were given a surprise when members of a glee club broke out into song.
The flash mob took place at B&Q in Titchfield on Saturday to raise awareness for the Milton Glee Club and to raise funds for local charities.
The group performed their own version of I would like to teach the world to sing, and by the end members of the public had joined in. The event had been planned for months but most of the staff at the store were kept in the dark about it.
Store manager David Martindale said: ‘It was fantastic. For me, it was really heartwarming.
‘We have been nervous - we’ve been planning it for months. It was an amazing feeling. I’m very proud.’
Lisa Congdon, who is in the HR and admin team at the store added: ‘We like to support charities. We thought it would be a good idea to create some activity around the store and try and get some more people in. It was amazing. I feel like a very proud mother.’
Money was also being collected for the Fareham and Gosport Food Bank and Enable Ability, based in Portsmouth.
