A tremendous 85 singers from various choirs in Forth Valley, including some members of our staff, gathered in the atrium at Forth Valley Royal Hospital for a brilliant performance, including well-known numbers from Bob Dylan and John Lennon.
They raised their voices to mark World Mental Health Day 2016 and the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival.
The impromptu sing-along was organised by Emily Stewart, the Activity Coordinator for Falkirk’s Mental Health Association, FDAMH. Emily and two choir members were invited to speak live on air with Jim Prentice from Radio Royal.
The event raised £300 for FDAMH and highlighted the immense wellbeing effects of singing together.
