Schools join forces for the mayor’s carol ser­vice

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

CHIL­DREN from the bor­ough’s schools came to­gether to en­ter­tain the Mayor for the an­nual pri­mary schools’ carol con­cert.

A to­tal of 23 schools took part in the singing, which was ac­com­pa­nied by the Berk­shire Mae­stro’s Corelli Orches­tra and mu­si­cal direc­tor James Baker.

A col­lec­tion was held for the mayor’s cho­sen char­i­ties: an ini­tia­tive called Cancer Cham­pi­ons with the lo­cal sup­port group In­volve, and the Royal Berk­shire Hos­pi­tal Sup­port Group.

Bor­ough Mayor Cllr Rob Stan­ton said: “I was de­lighted by the turnout.

“The money we have raised at the con­cert will be go to help­ing and sup­port­ing those in the bor­ough with cancer through the Royal Berk­shire Hos­pi­tal Sup­port Group and my own ini­tia­tive.

“Un­for­tu­nately I was di­ag­nosed with cancer three years ago, and the care I re­ceived was su­perb and I am de­lighted that the money raised will go to­wards en­abling the Royal Berk­shire Hos­pi­tal Sup­port Group to con­tinue their top-qual­ity cancer care.

“The choir and orches­tra, were, as al­ways, out­stand­ing.”
