Players from Faireys lit up the Christmas spirit when they helped staff and patients at Trafford Hospital enjoy their annual carol service.

A small group of brass players from the Fairey Band were invited for a second year to provide music for the Annual Christmas Carol Concert at Trafford General Hospital NHS Trust Manchester. The concert was held for patients, their families and staff of the hospital on the Seymore Ward.

The Carol Concert included the traditional lighting of advent candles and the reading of Christmas prayers by the Hospital Chaplancy Team & Senior Nursing Staff.
