To help mark the NHS’s 70th birthday, the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir has teamed up with an array of celebrities to release The Beatles’ classic ‘With a Little Help from My Friends’. It is hoped that the song will hit the number one spot!

Featuring the likes of Seal, Beverley Knight and Guy Garvey, all proceeds from the song will go to NHS charities across the UK.

The single, which will be released this Friday (6 July), is available to pre-order now.

There will also be a special documentary about the making of the track, which is being aired on ITV at 9pm on Wednesday 4 July – the day before the NHS’s birthday.

Presented by TV stars Ashley Banjo and Sara Cox, the show will see a star-studded cast gather together with groups of amateur singers from around the country to attempt to break the world record for the biggest live singalong.
