Sing your way to better health is the name of the game for a new choir being launched by a doctors’ surgery in March, Cambridgeshire.
The Riverside Choir is the brainchild of Dr David Donovan and is aimed at anyone who is looking for something interesting to do or needs a little lift of their spirits.
It will be run by music teacher Elaine Tootle and she is excited about the project which will launch as soon as enough people have signed up for the choir.
“We have the room ready at the Riverside practice, Dr Donovan is organising a piano all we need now is some enthusiastic people who enjoy singing,” said Elaine.
There are already a few people signed up but Elaine said she needs another five or six before the singing can start.

The choir, which will meet on Tuesdays between 1pm and 2pm at the surgery in Marylebone Road, is open to people of all ages and singing ability.
Elaine said: “The aim will eventually be to do some performing, if people would like to. It doesn’t matter if you don’t think you have a good voice, the choir is about enjoyment. Singing can really help lift the spirits and make you feel good, so we just want everyone to have fun.”
