The London Air Ambulance has joined forces with a Christmas Carol Group from Ireland to deliver a Christmas Concert to be held in Whitton next month.

Residents have been formally invited to start their festive season with a selection of Christmas carols sang by Irish Christian music group SonLight at the St Philip and James Church on December 1, at 5pm.

There will also be an opportunity to make a donation to support the London Air Ambulance.

A Spokesperson from the London Ambulance Charity said: "Many people don’t realise that we are a charity and rely on donations to keep our service running.

"Receiving only partial funding from the NHS, our ability to continue to treat severely injured people is dependent on the generosity of members of the public and organisations and, to-date, their support has helped us treat over 40,000 people."

After the concert, refreshments will be offered while a raffle and retiring collection take place.
