HUNDREDS of members of the country’s largest contemporary choir sold homemade pink cakes and biscuits at rehearsals, flash-mobbed shoppers and raised more than £2,000 for charity.

Singers in the Hedge End and Chandlers Ford, Portsmouth and Winchester Rock Choirs joined up to serenade shoppers at Marks & Spencer at Hedge End.

They performed uplifting songs from the Rock Choir repertoire, such as Erasure’s A Little Respect and Jess Glynn’s Hold My Hand.

It was all in aid of Breast Cancer Haven, Wessex, in Titchfield.

Choir leader Jan Moll said: ‘We had a fantastic pink week with all of my Rock Choir members taking part.

‘They are always so generous in raising funds for worthy causes and we had great fun doing so.’

Rock Choir is the UK’s largest contemporary choir with in excess of 24,000 members in more than 320 areas.

There are no auditions and no requirements to read music or have any previous singing experience.

Jan added: ‘Rock Choir members get together each week to attend fun, friendly rehearsals where they are taught specially- arranged pop, rock and chart songs.

‘There are lots of exciting performances throughout the year and many of them help raise money for charity.’
