Established in 2014, the PSG choir organisation helps people to build confidence in their vocal ability, perform with a live band and enjoy bonding with their friends and community.
With 75 members of PSG choir based in Wiltshire, founder Will Blake and his choir will be taking pop, soul and gospel to the masses this Saturday (14th July) and raising funds for Plastic Oceans, by doing a musical tour around our county.
Plastic Oceans Foundation engages people of all ages, in all social situations, to understand the danger of continuing to perceive plastic to be disposable; a vital subject obviously, in which the choir asks for a small donation to the cause.
Plastic Oceans explains, “The problem of plastic pollution is growing exponentially every year; we are producing more than 300 million tons of plastic, half of this is designed for single use, and each year around 8 million tons of it ends up in our oceans. We can solve this problem and we can do it by educating and engaging everyone in a conversation to rethink plastic. Plastic Oceans is working to change the way we deal with plastic waste by challenging society’s perception that this indestructible substance can be treated as ‘disposable’.”
“Once people become aware of the ultimate threat to human health, it will become a personal choice to prevent plastic waste from entering the environment. We plan to tackle this issue, through an awareness campaign using film and media – our documentary feature film, A Plastic Ocean. We will continue to spread the message of the film activating students through education, engaging with industries through entrepreneurship and partnering with global organizations actively changing their communities.”
If you’d like to see PSG Choir perform on the tour, they’ll be at The Brittox, Devizes at 10:30am, the Borough Parade Shopping centre, Chippenham at 12:30pm, Derry Hill and Studley Village Fete at 3:20pm, and finishing at The Bear in Melksham at 4:30pm.
“It’s time we did something about the horrendous effect single use plastics are having on the planet,” says PSG, “and the amazing creatures that live on it.”
