Christmas Treat from 1st Shipley Group

Date: 21st Dec 2020 Author: Sal Dartnell

Christmas Carolling has been a longstanding and much looked forward to tradition for 1st Shipley Group. For obvious reasons it wasn’t possible for them to do it normally this year so they tapped into their usual resourcefulness and creativity.  Chris Sutton, one of the leaders told us …

“In answer to the problem, we decided to film a very special Christmas treat for our supporters instead. The whole group got involved and the members put their heart and souls into the project. You can see our video here – give it a watch, we promise it will warm your hearts! we’re very proud of how it turned out and how our group members preformed.”

Christopher explained that the donations they usually receive for this annual tradition are vital for their group, particularly this year when they haven’t been able to do any of their usual fundraising. They moved things online and have had some wonderful donations and support via their just giving page.
