The BBC’s Songs of Praise programme selected 32 winning fans to perform before the Rugby League Challenge Cup final at Wembley on Saturday, August 27.

Winners will have the once in a lifetime opportunity to lead a capacity stadium in ‘Abide With Me’ alongside Aled Jones.

The group will also appear on a special edition of Songs of Praise the following day.

Places in the choir were awarded to Rugby League fans across the country who had demonstrated passion for both their club and the game.

Lynne Blackmore, who will be representing Wakefield Trinity Wildcats in the choir, has been heavily involved with the club for a number of years.

Winners were chosen by a panel of experts including West End star Connie Fisher and Leeds Rhinos player Jamie Jones-Buchanan.
