Breathe Easy groups make a charity single
Teresa from the Nottingham West Breathe Easy group tells us about their exciting new charity single.
After months of dedication, planning and practice, we've released our first charity single! We chose to record a version of the Bill Withers' classic 'Lean on Me', as it represents how people with lung conditions share their experiences and support each other.
Singing can provide excellent health benefits to people with lung conditions. There's increasing evidence that singing regularly, and as part of a group, can help people with lung conditions physically, psychologically and socially. It's a great feel good factor and a healthy way to exercise your lungs!
The song has backing music from a local Nottingham band called Brotherhood, and many people living with lung conditions from across Nottinghamshire contributed their voices. Even a few respiratory nurses and GPs were involved!
