Cash has been raised for two vital charities at a carol service in south Leeds.

The Mayor of Morley’s annual carol services took place at the Alexandra Hall, in Morley Town Hall, on Sunday.

Hosted by the Mayor of Morley, Coun Robert Finnigan, the service was led by Major Colin Stevens, of the Salvation Army.

Dozens of visitors packed into the town hall to take part in the event, which featured musical performances from the Salvation Army band, and there was also a visit from Santa himself to entertain children.

The concert also included a collection, to raise money for the Mayor’s chosen charities for his year in office.

This year, Coun Finnigan has chosen to support Leeds’s Martin House Children’s Hospice and the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, which is based in Huddersfield.

The service was free to attend for residents.
