This time a re-write of the words wasn’t enough. The sentiment of the song needed to change, from the celebratory march of NHS70, to a softer and more supportive feel where our staff are putting themselves at risk day in, day out, to make sure our patients get the care that they need.
The music was written specifically for our choir by one of our members. The vocal recordings were done by some of our choir members in their own homes, putting themselves a long way out of their comfort zones to sing without the support of the rest of the choir and having to learn the song completely from scratch. We’d also like to thank the fabulous Brendon and Tim for their help with the editing and video creation.
Unfortunately, not all our choir friends were able to contribute to this recording, but we will definitely be singing this song in the future when we sing together again!
We wanted to share our song with our RCHT colleagues and we hope that it offers a little support and hope during these challenging times.
Although not released to be a fundraiser, if people enjoy the song and want to say thank you to RCHT staff and volunteers, they can donate the price of a cup of coffee through www.virginmoneygiving.com/fund/kindcoffee
