More than 200 people attended a carol concert at St Wulfram’s, and raised over £1,000 for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.
The event on December 4 saw festive songs and performances from Isaac Newton Primary School, Kesteven Grantham Girls’ School, National Junior School, and Raised in Song. It was compered by Nicola Gilroy of BBC Radio Lincolnshire.
Rainbows cares for over 300 youngsters with terminal and life-limiting illnesses in the East Midlands. The hospice’s President, Her Grace, The Duchess of Rutland, gave a seasonal reading and said: “Rainbows is such a worthwhile cause, which I am delighted to support. As a mother myself I can understand how fragile the health of a child can be.”
Katie Baxter, events and community manager at Rainbows, said: “This was a lovely event and we would like to thank everyone who came along, their support means so much to the families at Rainbows. Thank you also to the Duchess of Rutland who read a very emotive story and thanks to the choirs and schools who sang some beautiful songs – as always we did our annual 12 days of Christmas which is great fun and involves everyone.”
