Cancelled or delayed trains, expensive tickets- there’s often not a lot to be happy about at train stations.
We love anything that can make commuters smile, like this fantastic initiative at Hove Station.

This December, choirs will be bringing some festive cheer to commuters across Yorkshire.

Choirs – like the one above from St. Francis Catholic Primary School, who sang at Leeds train station – are taking part in the Sing For Your Heart Campaign. The aim of the campaign is to raise more money than ever for research into heart disease.

Around 7 million people are living with cardiovascular disease in the UK and many have been helped thanks to pioneering medical research. However 70,000 people die from Coronary Heart Disease every year. It’s the UK’s single biggest killer.

More research is needed to help prevent these deaths.

A number of celebrities are taking part in the Sing For Your Heart Campaign, including Alesha Dixon, Piers Morgan and Christopher Biggins.

Taking part in this fun, festive campaign is simple: upload a short video of you (and friends / family) singing your favourite song, donate by texting SING to 70144 to donate £3 and then nominate up to three others to take part in the challenge too.
