The Creation Station are running special ‘Sing-Along for Syria’ art and crafts classes for children aged 6 months to 5 years to raise awareness and funds to help the frightened, homeless, refugee children from Syria. Children and families can join in with the award winning, fun and educational classes across the country.
We have teamed up with a host of TV stars to have a ‘Sing Along For Syria’ in our award winning and educational art & crafts classes. “It’s been heart breaking to see the the children and families struggling,” said Sarah Cressall, Managing Director of The Creation Station. “We really wanted to do something to help so have incorporated the Sing-Along songs into our sessions to help raise awareness of this fantastic project.”
Our classes will feature a group sing-along with fun songs recorded by a range of popular children’s TV presenters recorded especially for the fund raising album. Sessions will run between the 12th and 30th October. Find more information about your local Creation Station sessions at www.thecreationstation.co.uk.
You can download the album by visiting www.singalongforsyria.com and every penny raised from purchases of the album, will go directly to the Save the Children’s Child Refugee Crisis Appeal.
The Sing-Along for Syria album was born from the imagination of the Preston-based entertainer known better to his young audience as Mr Yipadee and a galaxy of stars from the world of TV who have all donated their time and talents in the recording studio at Salford’s Media City to lend their voices to the compilation of children’s songs. “As a parent, I couldn’t just sit by and watch what is happening," commented Mr Yipadee. “We wouldn’t allow this to happen to our children, why would we sit by and watch while the Syrian children suffer?” All money raised from purchases of the album, will go directly to the Save the Children’s Child Refugee Crisis Appeal.
Stars singing on the album include: Tina O’Brien, as seen on Coronation Street, Cerrie Burnell as seen on CBeebies, Andy Day as seen on Andy’s Dinosaur Adventures, Rebecca Keatley as seen on Let’s Play, Kate Thistleton as seen on CBBC, Alex Winters as seen on CBeebies, Katy Ashworth as seen on I Can Cook, Cat Sandion as seen on CBeebies and Hi¬5, Luke Roberts as seen on CITV, Craig Smith of number one selling hit Wonky Donkey, Derek Moran and Jen Pringle, both seen on Channel 5’s Milkshake, Sid Sloane, as seen on Let’s Play, Emma Nowell, from CITV’s Hi¬5 and Cartoonito, and Dean O’Brien, Mr Yipadee.
“Everybody has been heartbroken by what’s happening and particularly as a parent, it’s unimaginable to think what’s happening to those children,” said CBeebies presenter, Alex Winters. “I hope that this album spreads joy and laughter for kids here in the UK, and spreads resources, hope, and love to the refugees.”
