A couple from Hemel Hempstead are singing outside their home for their neighbours to raise money for Raise, West Hertfordshire Hospitals Charity.

Iain and Stephanie Fearon, of Woodlands Road, will be hosting a 30 minute session every Thursday at 7.30pm before the Clap for Carers on their road - the pair are hoping to raise their neighbour's spirits while raising money for charity.

Raise is the charity dedicated to supporting patient care across Watford General, Hemel Hempstead and St Albans City hospitals.

Iain and Stephanie are singing to raise money for Raise, West Hertfordshire Hospitals Charity.

Iain said: "Every patient deserves the highest quality care and your donations help fund the latest technology, environmental enhancements, staff development and extra comforts that make such a difference to patients, day after day, above and beyond what the NHS can afford alone.

"The charity helps in so many ways and this is our way of helping them to continue the amazing work they are doing."

The West End performers will have a different theme every week for the residents of Woodlands Rd and this will also be streamed on Facebook live, so those who don't live on the road can still enjoy it.

Iain added: "We moved to the road in March and we thought this was a nice way to get to know the neighbours together outside their houses, lift their morale, show our appreciation for the NHS and raise money for charity.

"Last week we sang Motown, this week we are going for more rock and roll."
