Chrysalis’ Hand Vibz! makaton choir were lucky to sign on stage with Sandi Thom at the Whitehaven Marina event: Pride by the Harbourside, while she sang ‘I Wish I was a Punk Rocker’.

Hand Vibz! had just completed their own set before taking to the stage with Sandi. The songs they performed were ‘Best Day’, ‘Mr Blue Sky’ and ‘Proud’.

Vicky, Service Manager for The Meeting Place and the choir master said “It was a fab day. We are all so proud of the choir, they did brilliantly. These individuals are just amazing”
