SOBS have supported this nationwide initiative by English National Opera, to assist Long Covid sufferers with their breathing, using singing techniques. In December, two of the committee were invited to the Coliseum to meet some of the people who had taken part in the programme by Zoom, and on that day were all meeting up to sing together on the stage at the Coliseum. It was a delightful and fairly emotional event, as those taking part had never actually met before, only seen each other on screen. We found it fascinating to talk to some of the participants and hear how the programme had really helped them with their symptoms. One lady said she had never sung before, but enjoyed it so much, she has now joined a choir! It is now continuing to be used for patients with other breathing problems, such as asthma.
