It's time to raise your voices and funds for Action for Children with
some carol-singing. The Girls' Brigade will be holding their evening
event on Monday 10th December — all welcome. On Monday 17th we shall
be singing outside Sainsbury's from 7pm for an hour and need all the
help we can muster. Wednesday 19th the Boys' Brigade will be braving
the elements to sing to some houses in the neighbourhood. 'Live'
singers are appreciated even if we won't win any choir contests! We'd
love to see you at any or all of these opportunities.
Thank you —
