Come along and support Scotty’s Little Soldiers – a charity that helps children and young people across the UK…
People in Wrexham are being urged to come along and sing their hearts out when the city hosts its first ever Armed Forces Community Carol Service this December!
The free event will take place at St Giles Church on Tuesday, December 5 starting at 7pm, with donations going to a very special charity called Scotty’s Little Soldiers.
Councillor Beverley Parry Jones, Wrexham Council’s Armed Forces Champion, said: “Scotty’s Little Soldiers is an amazing charity that was inspired by the experience of army widow Nikki Scott, who lost her husband in Afghanistan in 2009.
“It helps children and young people who’ve lost a parent who served in the British armed forces, and all donations at the carol service will go towards supporting the incredible work they do.
“We’re so proud to support the charity and we hope the people of Wrexham will show their support on December 5 by coming along to the service at St Giles. Everyone is welcome!”
The service will feature The Band of the Prince of Wales, which is one of the 14 regular bands in the British Army.
Based in Brecon, the musicians are well-travelled having performed in Germany, Cyprus, Dubai, Kuwait, Sudan, the Falkland Islands and at the FA cup Final at Wembley stadium.
St Joseph’s High School choir will also be performing – spreading festive cheer with a wonderful repertoire of Christmas songs.
Cllr Parry-Jones added: “Wrexham has strong links with the armed forces, and the carol services will be a fantastic way to both celebrate Christmas and pay tribute to veterans and the incredible men and women who serve our country.
“It promises to be a lovely evening full of Christmas spirit and music, and we’d love to see as many members of the public as possible.
“Please come along and help make this a fantastic evening.”
