When friends Mel and Kim posted a video of them­selves hav­ing a sin­ga­long on the way home from an Elvis trib­ute gig, the re­sponse gave them a fundrais­ing idea. ‘ We’re run­ning a marathon for Clic Sar­gent, so we thought, “Why not take re­quests in re­turn for do­na­tions?”’ says Kim, 49. Mel and Kim’s Car­pool Karaoke was born. The pair, from Dorset, dress up to fit the cho­sen song, sing it from the car and post footage on their Face­book page. The idea has been such a suc­cess that they’ve pledged to sing their way around the race it­self. ‘ We’ll sing one song per mile,’ ex­plains Mel, 46. Both women have run marathons. ‘ But now we love dress­ing up and just en­joy­ing events,’ says Kim.
