Carol service boosts Hospital Charity

24 Dec 2010 11:10:34

Patients, staff and visitors tuned their vocal chords and made merry music at Rotherham Hospital’s carol service on the 13th December to raise money for the hospital’s Purple Butterfly Appeal.

More than 150 people were joined by the Mayor of Rotherham, Rosie McNeely and Chairman Margaret Oldfield in the hospital canteen, to sing festive favourites with music from Rotherham Hospital Choir and the Salvation Army.

Co-ordinator of Chaplaincy Services Reverend Joan Ashton said: “It’s lovely to see so many different groups of people coming together to celebrate the festive season. It has been a fantastic service and I hope we have made everyone smile.“

Children from St Mary Magdalene Primary School, Maltby, performed a medley of Christmas songs including ‘Little Donkey’ and ‘When a Child is Born.’ There was also a special visit from Santa Claus on his sleigh with his elves.

Joan said: “Santa gave all the children some chocolate which they enjoyed. The choir from St Magdalene’s School were fantastic - they were very brave to sing in front of so many people. I’m already looking forward to next year’s event, as I hope it will be even better!”

All the money raised from the carol concert will be donated to Rotherham Hospital’s Purple Butterfly Appeal and the Salvation Army
