The Choir in action at the Dog Inn on Sunday night.
Soon off to bed Xavier joined the singers for this first ever carol duty! Whilst he did not complete the evening he was full of carol singing when he got home tired!
With the weather being kind - once again it was not raining even if it was rather cold - a large group of us ranging from 3 years old up sang our way around the village calling on doors. A warm up in the Swan pub at the end of the evening was a welcome warming time. We have so far raised £184.60 for UHCW and raised a further £95.41 when the choir sang in Ankerside Shopping Centre in Tamworth last Saturday. This stands for University Hospital, Coventry and Warwick, otherwise known as Walsgrave Hospital. The charity supports all wards and services in Coventry and the Hospital of St Cross, Rugby. They fund new equipment and facilities. Their most recent appeal was for ante-natal, neo-natal and post natal baby care. This included plans for family rooms, bereavement counselling, a birthing pool and scanning rooms.
Some pictures here of the hardy bunch which traversed the village singing on the Tuesday night as well as video below of the choir in action at the Dog Inn. They raised a further £85.99 singing in the pub making a grand total of £366 for UHCW.
