This year, Sing for Water North will be held on Saturday 13th June at 13:30 outside the Harris Museum, Market Square in Preston, hosted by Preston People’s Choir.
There will be a rehearsal in the morning from 10.30-12.30, a break for lunch, and then the main event in the afternoon. Anyone with or without a Musical Director (MD) or choir can come along to take part on the day.
Each singer will be required to register as an individual, even if you are planning to attend with the rest of your choir. If possible, this should be done by completing the form further down this page. This will be much simpler for you and for us.
The songs will be taught at the rehearsal but time is limited and it is recommended that you familiarize yourself with the songs beforehand. All registered individuals can get access to the song files in the Singers’ Area. A password will be emailed to you once you have registered. The song files can be listened to on the site or can be downloaded to your computer, tablet or phone.
Your £15 registration donation will go directly to Water Aid. Any money left over after essential rehearsal expenses have been paid, will be added to the Sing for Water North fundraising total for this year.
As at previous events, rather than asking participants to raise sponsorship, each person taking part will be asked to donate a minimum of £15 to Water Aid via Sing for Water North. You can of course get sponsorship or raise money through additional events if you wish and donate more! £15 has been chosen because it represents the amount that provides sustainable clean water and sanitation for one person. Please note that we will not be accepting registrations/donations at the rehearsals (apart, of course, from the Sing for Water North bucket – which always makes an appearance!).
As part of the registration process, you can make your £15 donation via the Sing for Water North’s Just Giving page. Donating via this link will allow you to add Gift Aid, if applicable, and thus raise more money for Water Aid. If you wish to make your donation at a later date, you can do so by simply going straight to the Just Giving page. Please Note: Justgiving have changed the way that their system operates and now ask for a donation towards their running costs however, this is not compulsory (see the instructions and image below the registration form for further details).
