A choir is hosting the free festive gathering at Trinity Church on Friday December 10.

The Strathcarron Singers - a choir set up to raise funds for the hospice in 2004 – will host an evening of Christmas music and readings.

The event, called ‘Here We Come A-Carolling’, usually takes place every year, but due to the pandemic this will be the first show since 2019.
