A choir for people with chronic lung disease

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:27 pm on 8 November 2019

It can also give people in tough situations a big boost - especially when they can share their love of music with others.

Gayle Williams is the co-ordinator of the COPD choirs - groups of singers around the country who all live with chronic lung illnesses.

She's on the line to tell us more.
