Invictus Games Choir brings festive cheer to London

Posted by: Help For Heroes | Categories: Beneficiaries , Fundraising , Mental Health

Today, 17 wounded, injured and sick members of the Invictus Games Choir performed at Tottenham Court Road Tube station to raise money for Help for Heroes.

The Choir made use of the piano at Tottenham Court Road, provided by Yamaha in partnership with TfL, as part of their #Platform88 project, which provides opportunities for musicians to play and entertain their fellow passengers.

Sabrina Dunster, member of the Invictus Games Choir, said: “Having previously isolated myself while struggling through my recovery, I have since joined the choir and I am no longer lonely and miserable.

"I am optimistic for the future and am thoroughly enjoying indulging in music again – it stretches me emotionally and academically. Experiences like these, performing for Christmas shoppers and spreading festive joy, really is medicine for the soul.”

The Invictus Games Choir enables participants to experience recovery through the power of choral singing, and members have performed in some amazing venues, including Twickenham Rugby Stadium, Canterbury Cathedral and will be at the Royal Albert Hall in 2018.
