Have any of you in choirs considered busking locally to raise even more money for Water Aid?
Picturehouse Choir raised almost £300 this way, which more than covered the costs of staging the main Sing for Water North event in 2011; the rest, of course, went directly to Water Aid.
You must obtain a street collection permit from your local council but it is surprisingly easy to do – I did it all online.
Water Aid have very helpful staff who you can ask for information, materials such as publicity materials to hand out and collection buckets, or just a bit of moral support; they have a resources page with all the information you need.
If you want to, email us using the contacts page and we can help you with any questions.
Go on, have a go – it’s great fun (even in the rain) and you get a bit more practice for the big day.
