Lord Mayor of Bristol’s Children Appeal: Supported Again by Members of SI Bristol

This December, members from SI Bristol Liz N and Marion and other members of the Lord Mayor of Bristol’s Children Appeal Committee had two successful fundraising events.

One was a Carol Concert in St George’s Hall, where we collected the amazing sum of £1051. Those present at the Concert enjoyed listening to several choirs, a brass band and also singing favourite Christmas Carols.

A few days later, accompanying Santa’s sleigh from the Water Tower on the Downs, along Whiteladies Road, Park Street and Broadmead to Cabot Circus, we collected £650. Santa and the Lord Mayor (Councillor Paul Goggin) rode in the sleigh, which stopped frequently to allow passersby to take photographs and make a donation. With carols blaring, it was impossible to ignore the sleigh!
