LOWESTOFT a cappella group The TestostaTones have offered their voices to a new BBC TV series.
They have written and composed a jingle for Beeb's new Village SOS initiative, which aims to find enterprising village champions.
Brothers Stephen and Paul Amer, and Bim and Richard Ainslie, have previously recorded a jingle for a Simon Mayo radio show. Now they have teamed up with Make Your Mark, the BBC and the Big Lottery Fund to help them find individuals with the skills and passion to help transform rural Britain.
Stephen said: 'Growing up in a rural area such as Lowestoft has given the band members a real appreciation of what Village SOS is trying to achieve. Make Your Mark, which has an office in Lowestoft, has made a really big impact on the region.

'We're happy to do our bit to help raise awareness of the need to revitalise rural Britain. We hope our jingle will encourage people to take part.'
As part of the programme, six champions will be given the chance to work with a village for a year to drive a successful and sustainable business venture. It will receive start-up funding of up to �400,000, while the BBC will chart each village's journey in a six-part series, due to be broadcast next year.
