Men United in Song are looking for new members to help them raise money for Prostate Cancer UK while taking up singing as a hobby
A community project is looking for male singers from across the area to join their group.
Peterborough Sings have embarked on a quest to recruit 40 men for their Men United in Song event, which will take place in September.
The project will help to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK.
Several men from the South Holland area have taken part previously, and are being welcomed to come along for some singing, laughter and new experiences.
Introductory sessions kick off on Wednesday, September 8, (7-10pm); Thursday, September 9 (7-10pm); and Saturday, September 11, (2-5pm).
There is no audition or red buzzer - it’s simply a chance to meet the team and some of the other men taking part.
William Prideaux, director of Men United in Song, said: “Year on year, we see men of all ages from different walks of life get stuck into this project, producing fantastic results over a relatively short period of time in terms of the progress they make, the sound they produce and the money they raise for charity.
“It’s a pleasure and a privilege to work with them, and great fun too!”
John Wakefield, a Moulton Chapel farmer, said: “I was looking for something new to do and Men United in Song seemed like a great way of meeting new people and supporting a good cause, as I know a few people who have suffered prostate cancer.
“It was the first time I’ve really done anything like this - I wasn’t sure what to expect and it was quite a steep learning curve!
“Performing in the concert at the end of the project was the icing on the cake!”
John Hanby, who lives in Spalding, has thoroughly enjoyed his work with the project previously.
“I’d sung in the past and Men United in Song was a great way to pick it up again,” he said.
“I loved that the project was raising money for a great cause.
“There’s no feeling quite like waiting for a concert to start, knowing that you’ve all worked together to create something which is going to bring joy to hundreds of people. Just do it!”
