They’ve performed in locations as varied as railway stations and churches... but never before in a laundrette.

Members of the Sheffield Harmony choir were desperate to find a venue in the Ecclesall Road area where they could warm up before their performance at a charity fundraising event at Napoleon’s Casino.

The 50-strong all female a cappella group were unable to find a location – until Goodman Sparks Dry Cleaners came up trumps.

Elaine Carter, Sheffield Harmony president, said: “It was crucial to find somewhere for our physical and vocal warm-up and we were in a bit of a spin when local pubs and shops on Ecclesall Road were unable to accommodate us.

“Luckily Goodman Sparks Dry Cleaners saved the day. The staff welcomed us with open arms and we had an amazing response from customers who joined in with our songs and had a bit of a dance.”
