Celebration of Christmas carol service to raise funds for the Stroke Association

 

A Christmas carol service in aid of the Stroke Association will take place in Marlborough College Chapel at 7pm on Thursday December 19.  Guests are invited to enjoy an evening of seasonal celebrity readings and musical performances, as well as traditional carols.  The service is being supported by Royal Patron HRH the Duke of Kent KG. 

The evening will include performances from the internationally renowned classical singer Carly Paoli and soloist Tom Elwes from Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum.  

The Marlborough Stroke Association Christmas Choir will perform under choirmaster Adam Staines, alongside the Pinewood School Chapel Choir under Director of Music Niki Bell. 

Radio and television broadcaster Chris Tarrant and best-selling poet Charly Cox will read a lesson, and stroke survivor Martin Stephen will give an address (author and former High Master of St Paul’s School and Manchester Grammar School), along with Juliet Bouverie the Chief Executive of the charity.  

Guests will be invited to arrive from 6pm to enjoy music from the Aldbourne Brass Band and festive refreshments provided by Marlborough College Summer School, MyAppleJuice, Waitrose and Wiltshire Liqueur.  The chapel will be adorned with spectacular decorations provided by OKA and sparkling trees from Twilight Trees.  

This is an advanced ticket-only event, with tickets on sale for £20 each from www.celebrationofchristmas.co.uk. A limited number are available at the White Horse Bookshop on Marlborough’s High Street.   

In addition, donations can be made at www.celebrationofchristmas.co.uk to help decorate a Christmas tree being gifted to the stroke ward at Great Western Hospital in Swindon.   Each donation made online will be represented by a beautiful decoration or light on the tree.  A mirror tree donated by Aldbourne Post Office Café and Deli and beautifully decorated by Susie Watson will be placed in the entrance to the chapel, to be enjoyed by guests attending the service.

Rachel Inglefield is chair of A Celebration of Christmas:“I know first-hand the devastating impact that stroke brings to individuals and their families as I had a stroke just seven years ago - eleven days after the birth of my son.”

“We are thrilled to be bringing this magical event to Marlborough and have been overwhelmed by the support of local businesses, from Marlborough College Summer School who are providing the food, to Copy Colour who are printing our material, OKA who are decorating the outside of the chapel, and Twilight Trees who are bringing some Christmas sparkle with their magical LED trees.”
