Christmas shoppers in the Mall at St Georges in Preston tomorrow night will be treated to a festive performance by the city’s One Voice Community Choir.

From 6pm, the choir will be out in force in the shopping centre, wearing Santa hats and reindeer antlers, to spread Christmas cheer among the late night shopping crowds.

The choir, founded by Tyndale Thomas, will also be collecting money for the North West cardiac rehabilitation charity, Heatbeat.

Seasonal shoppers are asked to dig deep for this worthy cause while enjoying the sounds of the choir who were seen on Songs of Praise earlier this year, competing in the final of the BBC’s Gospel Choir of the Year.

Although they didn’t win, they were highly commended by the judges, including the founder of the London Community Choir, Rev Bazil Meade, MOBO award winning vocal coach Carrie Grant, and soul diva Ruby Turner.

They also got the thumbs up from motorists on the way to the final when, stuck in traffic jams after a pile up, they got out to entertain other stranded drivers from the hard shoulder.
