Frozen parody lifts spirits in campaign to raise money for NHS
A coronavirus parody of Disney musical ‘Frozen‘ has circulated around the internet, delighting viewers. Lawyer Charlotte Fisher dressed up as Disney princess Elsa to sing about coping with the everyday challenges of the pandemic lockdown. The viral video is in aid of a fundraising campaign for NHS staff and volunteers to help to tackle the outbreak in the UK.
On her Just Giving page, Ms Fisher wrote: “My husband Sam and I (with the help of Henry our dog) have put together this parody to raise money for NHS heroes caring for COVID-19 patients.
“If you’ve enjoyed watching, please give generously to show your support for the heroes fighting on the frontline and keeping us safe in our homes.”
The couple aimed for a target of £800, but have already surpassed it.
At the time of writing, the total stands at £900.
One supporter wrote: “This was very creative, it made me and my daughter smile and hope you raise loads of money for this great cause.”
Another named Angela said: “Great work for a very worthy cause!”
Pippa Stewart praised the video: “Well done guys, we really appreciate what you are doing for us.”
Another doner thanked the couple: “You guys are awesome. Thank you for lifting everyone’s spirits at such a difficult time.”
The campaign is run for the Association of NHS Charities.
There are 250 NHS Charities in the UK providing funds and services above and beyond what the NHS alone can provide.
Every day NHS Charities give £1million to the NHS.
Ms Fisher’s clever take on the popular hit has delighted viewers: “Let me go, let me go, I want to go outside.
“Let me go, let me go, I’ll stay two metres at all times.
“Joe Wicks and one hour of exercise a day is not enough.
“I can’t live in this virtual world in which I’m bound.
“Wi-Fi connection is in frozen fractures all around.”
