An Onchan woman will sing whilst dressed as a lobster in aid of Hospice at this year’s Manx Music Festival.

Susan Gibson will perform ‘Under the Sea’ from Disney’s Broadway musical ‘The Little Mermaid’ on May 1.

Susan said: ‘Last year both my father and grandmother needed hospice care at the end of their lives.

‘I want people in the Isle of Man to be able to have help from Hospice if they need it.

‘Hospice has to raise £3.5 million every year to maintain their existing services.

‘My fundraising is just a drop in the ocean.’

Susan is aiming to raise £1,000 through donations to her JustGiving webpage online.

‘I have been practising my scales with my singing teacher for a few weeks and that is really helping me with my tuna-ing,’ said Susan.
