East Kent Hospitals charity is looking for local musical groups who would be willing to donate up to an hour of their time during December to help spread a little festive cheer to our patients and staff.

The harmonious helpers would sing or play seasonal favourites in garden or courtyard areas around the hospitals, or outside the main entrances.

Performances would take place at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital, William Harvey Hospital in Ashford and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital in Margate.

Dee Neligan, senior charity officer of East Kent Hospitals Charity, which is co-ordinating festive treats for staff, said: “We want to make this Christmas extra special for our fantastic teams who have worked so hard over the past year.

“Music can really lift people and it would be fantastic if some of our wonderful local bands or choirs could donate some time to play for us.”

If you’re interested, please send an email with details of your band or choir, and some days and times you would be available, to ekh-tr.communications@nhs.net – if you have video showcasing your talents, please include that too!
