The event was timed to mark Human Rights Day when Soroptimists all over the world organise events to raise funds for local charities.

Soroptimist Jane Slatter said: "Everyone was so generous. We were recorded on quite a few smart phones and some children joined in by singing and dancing with us which was great fun! The staff at the station also seemed to be enjoying having a bit of entertainment while they were working."
