Christmas markets Nailsea 2014
Carol singers Nailsea December 2014
Young carol singers from Golden Valley Primary School gathered around the huge tree in Nailsea town centre on Thursday morning.
Children and staff in Years 5 and 6 walked from Nailsea Park to Crown Glass Shopping Centre to sing carols and Christmas songs to passersby at Somerset Square.
The crowd of supporters was swelled by parents and grandparents who had come along to hear the lovely singing at what has become an annual charity event.
Approximately £115 was collected and this was added to monies from other school events including a festive concert.
In total £843 will be shared between Children’s Hospice South West and Nailsea Disability Initiative.
During the Christmas market different choirs came together as Nailsea Singing Project to collect nearly £60 for Logan’s Wish a local charity raising monies to send a three-year-old with acute myeloid leukaemia and his family to visit Disneyland, Paris.
And sixth formers from Nailsea School rattled tins for the homeless in the High Street and Crown Glass Place while singing Rudolph the red nose reindeer and other festive songs.
Supporters of the Nailsea Ugandan Water Project have raised more than £68,000 in the past two years.
Carol singing outside Tesco Nailsea raised a further £508 with the shoppers appreciating the live music and learning about the charity which aims to bring clean sustainable water to an impoverished part of Africa.
NUWP chairman Roger Evans, of Southfield Road Church, said: “Even more people are now aware of the Nailsea Uganda Water Project.
“We look forward to next year and the fun we will have in raising the remaining £22,000.”
