Raising money for Megan Baker House
As the song goes – “the weather outside was frightful” – indeed the weather was atrocious. At one point we feared we may have to cancel, but the concert went ahead! And we were most grateful to have such a lovely and appreciative audience beginning their Christmas in true Christmas By Candlelight style! All the classics, beautifully sung and the musicians were simply superlative. A highlight personally had to be Catherine Handley playing the “Snowman”, but it is hard to choose any one highlight in truth as everything was so wonderful. We are still waiting to hear how much money was raised for Megan Baker House, working with young people with cerebral palsy. As our audience stepped back out to the cold night air they weren’t exactly Walking in the air but they did have a special Christmas magic to take home, and that wasn’t only Brian’s scrumptious mince pies!! Linda will be back next year, be sure not to miss it!
