The Yorkshire Evening Post team hosts their traditional carol service at Leeds Minster on 7 December at 7pm.
The service, conducted by the Rector of Leeds Minster, Canon Sam Corley, will celebrate the Christmas story through readings and performances by the Minster’s choir and the Yorkshire Evening Post Brass Band.
Editor Hannah Thaxter said: “The carol service is one of the highlights of the YEP calendar and hugely popular with our readers.
“We really appreciate all your support for this fundraising event. It is a lovely opportunity for people in the community to come together and I look forward to seeing you on the night.”
Tickets to the event are free, although a minimum £3.50 contribution is requested and will be collected at the church door. Proceeds will be shared equally between Leeds Minster and the YEP’s Half and Half appeal, which raises funds for St Gemma’s Hospice and Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice.
All those attending are also invited to bring a small, new gift or toy to place under the tree should they wish. The presents (labelled with the age and gender of the intended recipient), will be distributed to sick and under-privileged children throughout Leeds in time for Christmas Day.
A maximum of four tickets can be booked per person. Call 0333 207 0743 and select option 5 on weekdays, 9.30am and 5pm.
