A charity single by The Lewisham And Greenwich NHS Choir which includes doctors, nurses and physios is hoping to make this year’s coveted Christmas number one spot.

The song, “A Bridge over You” features a mashup of the smash hit by Coldplay and Simon and Garfunkel, and is an emotional celebration of the thousands of NHS staff who go the extra mile every day.

Caroline Smith who is an alto voice in the Choir, spoke to Jason McCrossan and Kyra Cross on 106.9 SFM Saturday breakfast show.  Caroline told Jason that as it’s a charity song, all proceeds will be shared between Carers UK and Mind (including Mind’s sister charities in Scotland and Northern Ireland), and in the new year a smaller percentage will also be distributed amongst smaller charities in the New Year.

A number of celebrities have been linked to the charity single and you are encouraged to download the song and tweet or post #loveyournhs – as Jason, Kyra and Jan did!

The song is available from Itunes, Amazon and google.
