Rock choir surprise blood donors with flash mob concert
by Tom Martin

MERSEYSIDE Rock Choir surprised life-saving blood donors with a flash mob concert at Aintree racecourse.

Around 30 members put on the surprise performance with a string of festive carols and pop hits at a donation session held at the racecourse to thank donors for their generosity.

The event was organised by Sharon Jones, a Senior Sister for blood donation based at NHS Blood and Transplant’s Speke centre, who is also a member of the choir.

She said: “It was a chance to thank the donors for giving up their time to give blood and to thank the staff for their hard work. All the people waiting to donate were clapping – it was great fun.”

The choir sat quietly at the far end of the room before emerging to stand and sing in front of the donor beds under the direction of Choir Leader Anthony Seaman.

Nikki Trayte, 33, from Maghull, said: “I think this was my ninth donation. The choir created such a nice atmosphere on the session. I gave blood to help save lives and had entertainment at the same time! I really enjoyed it.”
