SHOPPERS raised money for a good cause that helps people improve their lung health through singing.
Sounds Better CIC collected money at the Salisbury Co-op as part of the shop’s community fund initiative.
The £1714.55 raised will help Sounds Better to run its singing courses to improve lung health.
The courses have been available in Salisbury since 2017 following training with the British Lung Foundation and are now offering face-to-face and online attendance options.
The co-director of Sounds Better Liv McLennan celebrated alongside other good causes at the Castle Road store before Christmas.
She said: “We are so grateful to Salisbury Co-op shoppers for raising this significant amount of money. We will be supporting people living with breathlessness, lung conditions and long-covid through our introductory course, which we deliver alongside local Parish Nurse, Rose Maylin.”
One of the participants who attended a previous course, Hayley said: “Before the course, I couldn’t walk up a small nearby slop within having to stop to recover. I can now. I can certainly hold a note for much longer than I could at the start. Highly recommended.”
A six-week introductory course to singing for better breathing is due to start on Wednesday, February 22 at the Bemerton Heath Centre and will run until Wednesday, March 29.
The course offers a fun approach to breathing techniques.
