A SHEFFIELD singing group hosted a sing-your-heart-out workshop with a difference.

Sing for a Change, a group set up to encourage people to sing, took over Sheffield train station to run a flash mob singing workshop to raise money for Heart Research UK.

The mob was led by community voice teachers, and commuters were encouraged to belt out a song whether they could sing in tune or not.

Sing for a Change workshop director Val Regan said: “There was no written music and no complicated words to remember. It’s about singing for fun and the really good news is that it’s good for you. We hope they’ve caught the singing bug.”

As well as encouraging more people to sing, the group was raising money for a Yorkshire-based heart charity.

Heart Research UK funds medical research projects in to heart disease and promotes healthy lifestyle initiatives. Singing has been proven to have both physical and psychological benefits.

Barbara Harpham, Heart Research UK Director, said: “Singing together is heart-warming and a great way to de-stress, enjoy yourselves, and at the same time, care for your heart.”
