Staffordshire Day (May 1) sing-along to thank key workers

A group video sing-along of the Robbie Williams anthem Angels, to say thank you to the nation’s keyworkers, has gone live online to mark Staffordshire Day. More than 150 people from Staffordshire, including nurses and carers, recorded videos of themselves singing Robbie’s classic hit, as a tribute to the thousands of ‘angels’ keeping the country going through the Coronavirus crisis. They were then submitted to tourism body Enjoy Staffordshire, and edited into one video by Staffordshire County Council, which is now available to view at www.enjoystaffordshire.com/angels. It’s all part of the online-only Staffordshire Day celebrations, which take place today (May 1) and feature a host of live streamed and pre-recorded poetry readings, art classes, live music and cooking demonstrations. Mark Winnington, cabinet member responsible for tourism at Staffordshire County Council and Vice Chair of Destination Staffordshire, said: “This year’s Staffordshire Day is all about bringing people together and thanking those amazing groups and individuals who are helping us get through the Coronavirus pandemic. “We all know what a wonderful county Staffordshire is, and this is our chance to tell the world. I would like to say a special thanks to everyone who took part in our mass sing-along video to Robbie Williams’ Angels. “Robbie’s one of our own and we’re very proud of him in Staffordshire, and the song is hugely uplifting and meaningful. It’s the perfect way to thank all our angels who have stepped up to get the nation through the Coronavirus crisis". Darren Tudor is a social care assessor for Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, based in South Staffordshire. He said: “I have seen first-hand how this pandemic is affecting everyone and I think doing the video has helped bring us all together while having a lot of fun".
