St Edmundsbury Cathedral’s Carols by Candlelight ...
St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, is once again supporting The Children’s Society and raising money for vulnerable children across the country by holding their annual Carols by Candlelight service on Saturday 13 December.
The service will take place in the Cathedral, starting at 7 pm and will involve a range of talented local choirs. The charity’s Chief Executive, Matthew Reed and the Mayor of St Edmundsbury, Councillor Robert Everitt, will also be attending the event. All are welcome to attend this family friendly service and a full cathedral is expected on the night. The event is free to attend and donations will be taken during the service to support the work of The Children’s Society.
Caroline Baker who has volunteered to coordinate the service said: ‘I am really excited about the Carols by Candlelight service and proud to be helping to raise money to support some of this country’s most vulnerable children. It’s a great opportunity for the local community to get involved and we look forward to seeing lots of people there.’
Karen O’Connor, regional fundraiser manager for the eastern region said: ‘The Carol’s by Candlelight service is set to be an incredible event for all involved and we are so grateful for the vital funds that will be raised for The Children’s Society. Money raised during the Carol’s by Candlelight service will go towards our work with vulnerable children, including young runaways, disabled children and young carers.’
Before the service enjoy a glass of mulled and wine and hot apple punch in the Cloisters, being sold by the Friends of the Cathedral Choir.
