Christmas Carol Service to raise vital funds for lifesaving missions

The Air Ambulance Service (TAAS) is asking supporters to join the charity at its In Memory Christmas Carol Service to help raise the funds needed for its lifesaving missions.

This year TAAS celebrates 20 years of the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) and 15 years of the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA) as both services continue to provide pre-hospital critical care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The charity also celebrates 10 years of the Children’s Air Ambulance (TCAA), a national service changing the face of paediatric and neonatal care through the high-speed transfer of critically ill babies and children.

The In Memory Christmas Carol Service will take place on 08 December 2023 at St Andrew’s Church in Rugby between 6.00pm – 8.00pm.

There will be two fantastic school choirs from St Marie’s Junior School and Rugby Free Secondary School joining forces to perform Christmas carols and former Rugby’s Got Talent winner Paul Sammon and special guest Madison Matthew will be performing on the night. Also, in attendance on the evening will be The High Sheriff of Warwickshire, Sophie Hilleary and Councillor Maggie O’Rourke.

The evening will also include craft stalls, a raffle, cakes, refreshments including mulled wine and a special In Memory stall selling candles for reflection and baubles to write a loved one’s name on to display on Christmas trees or in the home.

“We would love you our local community to join us to honour those you’ve loved and lost on 08 December at St Andrew’s Church, 69 Church Street, Rugby, CV21 3PT,” said TAAS Legacies and In Memory Executive, Amy Worthington.

“There are car parks in the area, but we would advise driving to park in town and walk the rest of the way, if people are able to. We look forward to having our supporters join us,” she added.
