Carol singing and much more in the Triangle

It was raining on Thursday 20th of December but by 6pm it had stopped so the carol singers, some children dressed as elves, some in sparkly hats, all enthusiastic, kept their song sheets dry as they strolled and sang around the Ashburnham Triangle streets collecting for Shelter (charity for the homeless). We finished at the Ashburnham Arms for roast chestnuts and inside there was shepherds pie provided by Pepina at cost with the profit going to Shelter. Competition can be both fierce and friendly. Our Christmas Quiz (devised by Barbara) was just that and a very jolly end to the evening.
Together with the collection, food and quiz we raised £400. It is not hard to imagine the pain of being on the streets with no home to go to, so it is very satisfying to be able to have such fun while helping to make some lives a little easier.
Thank you to everybody who contributed to the evening.
Janet and Robin Stott
