20th December 2013 – Carol singers raise funds for hospital appeal
Carol singing school children have helped raise funds for Airedale Hospital’s endoscopy appeal.
The children, from Steeton Primary School, sang carols in the outpatients department of the hospital and were joined by staff from the endoscopy department and members of the Keighley Cougars rugby squad.
Julie Blackburn, sister on the endoscopy unit at Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, said: “The children were fantastic. They sang carols throughout the morning to help bring some Christmas cheer to patients coming in for appointments, tests or treatment.”
During the break between performances, the endoscopy team held a collection amongst visitors and staff to raise funds for the hospital’s endsocopy appeal.
Julie adds: “It was a great opportunity to raise awareness of our appeal as well as entertain people who were visiting various clinics.”
