'Ain't 3 Mountains Challenge' for Rock Choir Leaders in aid of charity

ON the 8 July and on 9 July 2017, 4 intrepid Rock Choir Leaders from the Northern region, will be taking on the famous Three Peaks Challenge, that is to climb the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours, to raise money for the UK's leading music therapy charity, Nordoff Robbins.

But they will be adding a unique musical twist as the adventurous four will be singing in beautiful and hopefully, not too breathless harmony, on the top of each mountain! Rock Choir Leader, Anthony said:- "It's been a long term ambition of mine to complete the Three Peaks Challenge, so to be able to add a musical twist to it and raise money for such a worthy cause as Nordoff Robbins, is a dream come true. I just hope we will have enough breath left to hit those high notes when we get to the top of each mountain!"

Throughout the Rock Choir Summer term 2017, members from across the North, will be fundraising in the lead up to the event, so look out for some exciting musical events in your Town! On the final day of the challenge, Rock Choir members from the region, will be joining them for the last leg of the trip, on the summit of Snowdon, to sing loud and proud at the highest point of Wales, also known as:- 'the land of song.'

Nordoff Robbins is the largest independent music therapy charity in the UK, dedicated to changing the lives of vulnerable and isolated people. It supports thousands of people in its own centres and by working in partnership with a wide range of organisations including care homes, Schools and Hospitals. When delivered by a trained practitioner, music therapy can help a child with autism to communicate, reduce anxiety for those living with dementia or provide comfort and celebrate the life of someone facing terminal illness. Almost ₤2,500 has been raised for the charity so far.

Hannah Sheedy, Nordoff Robbins Head of Fundraising says:- "We are so grateful to have the incredible support of Rock Choir who like us, believe in the power of music. The ambitious fundraisers at Rock Choir taking on the intense 'Ain't 3 Mountains High Enough' challenge are raising vital funds which will enable us to reach more vulnerable and isolated people with our life-changing music therapy. As a charity our work is dependent on loyal supporters such as Rock Choir and we are so thankful to their team for going the extra mile and taking on this challenge. Thank you Rock Choir, you are absolutely brilliant"

The team will be tackling Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, guided by professional guides, Central Adventures, online.

Rock Choir's uplifting ethos of fun, friendship and community spirit is a huge part of its attraction. At an individual level, it helps improve people's self confidence, enables them to develop new singing skills, and enjoy a dynamic new social life. Singing together and achieving such a great sound gives members a huge sense of fulfilment. Added to this is the glamour and excitement of performing in public, which for many is a truly liberating experience.
