Carols who sing carols – at Daresbury


undefinedOn Saturday 15 December there will be a 'Big Christmas Sing' at All Saints' Carroll Centre in Daresbury (attached to the parish church). Musicians, singers, and fans of the writer Lewis Carroll will gather for the special carolling event organised by Christian Aid North West.

From 6.30pm till 8.30pm there will be festive fun and music, plus an unofficial attempt by the charity to gather together the biggest number of people called Carol to sing carols around a Christmas tree.

Lewis Carroll (born as Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) spent the first eleven years of his life in Daresbury village, near Runcorn. He later became an Anglican clergyman (like his father) and a lecturer at Oxford University. He went on to write his famous Alice books.

“It will be a spectacular event to mark the start of the festive season,” said Karen Dudleston, Christian Aid’s events fundraising officer. “I can’t wait to see how many people named Carol we can get to sing around the tree at the Carroll Centre.”

If your first name is Carol, or your surname is Carroll, or you would just like to join in the fun, please go along. PICTURED is the Carroll Centre, just before construction was complete, with Vicar David Felix stood outside.

Admission to the Big Christmas Sing is free. For more information and to register your interest call the 01925 573 769 or visit carol event
