Exmouth Christmas sing-a-long hailed as a success
THE organiser of a charity Christmas sing-a-long believes the event grows from strength to strength every year it is held.
Laura McAdam, Christian Aid’s regional coordinator for Devon and Cornwall, was delighted with the success of the annual Great Big Christmas Sing held at Exmouth Pavilion last Saturday night, December 4.
Around �1000 was raised for the charity as a result of two music events which took place on the day.
In the afternoon, there was a showcase of talent from Exmouth’s primary schools and, in the evening, a number of skilled acts from around the town took to the stage.
Laura said some of the highlights included excellent performances from children at both Brixington and Marpool primary schools.
