The Stoneleigh Parish Carol Service will be held at the Kennel Club Building in Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire on Sunday 18th December. The festive event will begin at 7pm and includes performances from the Stoneleigh Ladies’ Choir, Stoneleigh Male Voice Choir and Stoneleigh Handbells. Everyone is welcome to attend, including canine companions.
During the service guests will be invited to donate money that will support the great work of The Salvation Army’s Way Ahead Project amongst the homeless community in Leamington Spa.
The seemingly unconventional setting for the service is due to Stoneleigh Church currently undergoing essential building work, so the Kennel Club Educational Trust stepped in and offered the building in Stoneleigh free of charge.
Gerald King, Kennel Club Educational Trust Chairman said: “Christmas is a time for goodwill and we hope that the carol service will help to raise funds for The Salvation Army’s work in the local area. The festive season is also a time for family and friends to get together and we are glad that this event will allow the four legged members of the family to join in the celebrations.”
Following the service, guests will be offered mulled wine and mince pies to round off the festive evening.
