The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust Choir has released a charity single dedicated to key workers, with proceeds going towards a coronavirus appeal.

In collaboration with Scottish singer-songwriter Dan Healy, they recorded ‘The Forgotten Ones’, filming a video which takes the perspective citizens obeying the government’s stay-at-home mandate whilst showing appreciation for frontline workers.

Funds raised from sales will be donated to NHS Charities Together’s COVID-19 Urgent Appeal, which funds grants to help charities supporting NHS staff, volunteers and patients in ways above and beyond what can ordinarily be provided.

Ellie Orton, CEO of NHS Charities Together, said: “When we heard ‘The Forgotten Ones’, it encapsulated exactly the gratitude we are feeling towards NHS staff and volunteers.

"Nothing about the choices staff and volunteers have made in their lives has changed--it’s just that their courage and willingness to risk themselves to keep us safe has suddenly been thrown into stark relief.

"You can say thank you by downloading this track as it will generate proceeds that NHS charities will use to support staff and volunteers dealing with COVID head on.”

The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust Choir achieved topped the charts at Christmas in 2015, with their song 'A Bridge Over You.'
