NetworkIn advocates don glad rags and mime magic for quarantine karaoke
We are all experiencing a motley crew of challenges and emotions during this weird and uncomfortable time, but it is also a time where many of us have come together to share compassion and joy.
Welcome along quarantine karaoke
At NetworkIN we wanted to help share some positivity and encourage people to smile, so we decided to join together to create something humorous and uplifting that would also support our local charities who are navigating through their own tough times.
The call went out to NetworkIN members to fix up their hair, tune up their vocals chords, throw on their dancing shoes and step out of their comfort zone for quarantine karaoke.
As we can’t go to town
Because we’re in lockdown,
We created a collective grin
To join together
For fun and pleasure.
Old and young
We danced and sung,
With the aim to please
Our local charities.
Who are the NetworkIN charities?
A member of each charity is an advocate at a Staffordshire or Cheshire NetworkIN Team. Fellow advocates join in with fundraising activities to help raise money and spread awareness of the good work carried out by the charities and support opportunities throughout the year. Quarantine karaoke is just one of many ideas to support such wonderful and local causes.
Cancer Research is the world’s largest charity dedicated to saving lives through research into this deadly disease with a vision to develop a cure for all cancers.
