Schools Singing 4 Hope

21st April 2020

Dear Parents,

I hope you and your families are keeping well.

I have been asked by Annette Yates, who is the headteacher at Newport School, if we would like to take part in a singing activity to raise money for our local NHS.

On Wednesday 22nd April 6.30pm and every Wednesday we would like to ask if all pupils and families and school staff could go outside their house and sing or play an instrument along to Bob Marley's 'Three Little Birds' (Don't worry about a thing). The Local radio station the Voice will be playing a version of Bob Marley's Three Little Birds for us all to 'chirp' away to. Everyone will need to Tune in, turn it up and step outside!

Our children know this song really well, as we sing it regularly in school assemblies.

Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Charitable Fund - Over and Above fundraising are supporting this and helping promote this with local media. A justgiving page has been set up.

Please donate some money if you can, and pass the link onto other people you know who live in the area.

There is more information available (including song lyrics so everyone can join in). 

If you can, please film your children singing and send in to families@bishopstawton-primary.org. Only send in your video clip if you are happy and give your permission for it to be possibly used in a short film for the media.

Photos of you performing would also be fab!

Thank you in advance for your support with this. Let's see if together we can help to raise a substantial amount.

Kind regards,

Helen Hughes
