Worcestershire Health Choir to sing for HRH The Princess Royal

A choir made up of NHS staff from across the county will sing for HRH The Princess Royal when she visits Worcestershire Royal Hospital in April.

The Voices For Health Choir, which was formed in May 2014 to provide an opportunity for people working in different roles to join together and sing, will perform a rousing rendition of ‘You Raise Me Up’, popularised by Westlife, at the official opening of Worcestershire Oncology Centre.

Hospital chaplain Rev David Southall who runs the choir, said: “We feel honoured that Voices 4 Health Choir has been invited to sing at the opening of the Worcestershire Oncology Centre in the presence of HRH the Princess Royal.  

“I am so proud of our choir and their commitment, passion and dedication. The song we have chosen embodies the support which we all need in trying times.”

The county’s brand new, state-of-the-art Oncology Centre will be officially opened by HRH The Princess Royal on Monday 13 April.

During her visit to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital the Princess Royal will also visit the hospital’s new Meadow Birth Centre, and meet patients and staff.
