Mintlyn Crematorium hosted a Christmas carol service on Wednesday 11 December. This year they were supporting The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House, as well as the Mayor’s charities.
Nearly £200 was raised on the night, and advance donations of £35 were raised through people hanging memory tags on the Christmas tree.
The service was led by Canon Peter Rollings of Our Lady of the Annunciation in King’s Lynn, Rev Julie Boyd of St Faith’s in Gaywood, and civil celebrant Debbie Coe.
Mayor of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, Cllr Geoff Hipperson, also attended the service.
Once again the choir from St Faith’s in Gaywood were part of the service, alongside them this year the Salvation Army brass band. Mince pies and drinks were enjoyed afterwards.
Cllr Paul Kunes, borough council cabinet member for commercial services, attending the service said: "This family-friendly carol service gets more popular every year. Nearly 100 people turned up and I’m delighted that over £200 has been raised for Tapping House and the Mayor’s Charities."
