Car­ols her­ald the Christ­mas sea­son

The Chronicle - - Our Town -

THE 16th an­nual Toowoomba Hospice Christ­mas car­ols ush­ered in the Christ­mas sea­son with the help of the city’s fam­i­lies.

About 250 peo­ple turned up to take part in the fes­tiv­i­ties.

The Toowoomba Mu­nic­i­pal Band and High Alti­tude Har­mony led the au­di­ence in the car­ols.

Toowoomba Hospice ad­min­is­tra­tion and fundrais­ing man­ager Mark Munro said the car­ols were a fab­u­lous evening for ev­ery­one.

“The car­ols started off as a small thing for the fam­i­lies of the hospice’s clients,” Mr Munro said.

“The event has grown con­sid­er­ably since it started 16 years ago.”

Vis­it­ing chil­dren also en­joyed a spe­cial visit from Santa.
