Sing for sight at SRSB night of musical cheer

Have your say

Enjoy a sing-song with the Sheffield Royal Society for the Blind on April 5.

The charity, which supports more than 3,300 blind and partially-sighted people in the city, will host a concert at the Victoria Hall Methodist Church from 7.30pm.

Choir members from the SRSB Singers will headline the event.

Sue Coggin, fundraising manager, said: “We are so proud of our singers, who have performed across Sheffield, even in The Winter Gardens. Research shows that singing is good for your health, helping you to live a longer healthier life. Sight loss can lead to people feeling isolated and lonely, so the group’s formation has helped to lift their spirits, leads to improved health and brings joy to all who listen.”

Guests will be welcomed to the event by SRSB client Bill Skipworth on the piano. The Millhouse Green Male Voice Choir will then perform a selection of songs from the First World War before entertainment from comedian and choir member Derek Richards, and euphonium soloist Tony Cooper.

n Tickets costing £7.50 are available from the SRSB’s centre on Mappin Street, on 0114 272 2757, or from The Victoria Hall reception.
