Christmas Carols

Southwell Renaissance Singers, who grew out of Southwell Choral Society and have an international reputation, have very kindly made a recording of traditional Christmas carols available to the Southwell and District Lions club. We want to share this compilation of 20 of the most beautiful Christmas carols with you to help you get into the festive spirit in this most difficult of years. From 1st December, the recording will be available on our website to listen to or download at: bit.ly/LionsCarols. All we ask in return is that you use the ‘donate’ button on the Carols Page. All proceeds will be shared equally between Reach and Southwell Live at Home (now known as MHA Communities – East Nottinghamshire). Your support will raise vital funds for the two charities, whose own fundraising capabilities have been severely affected during the pandemic. Carols for Everyone will be back at The Minster on 11th December 2021 – so put the date in your diaries!

Light Up a Life

Despite the difficult circumstances of 2020, Beaumond House Hospice Care still wants to bring its Light up a Life service to their supporters, at home. Instead of the annual services in Newark and Southwell, the charity will record a Light up a Life service at St Mary’s Church in Newark which will then be screened on Tuesday 15th December for a virtual gathering on Zoom for everyone to watch together. The Rock Choir, supporters of Beaumond House and representatives from Southwell and Collingham will be taking part in this service to bring everyone together. If you can’t make the night, no problem, the recording will be available on the Beaumond House website until the New Year or alternatively you can request a DVD copy to be posted to you. There will also be Trees of Remembrance in Newark (Beaumond House), Southwell (Minster) and Collingham (All Saint’s Church) kindly donated by local businesses, to bring Light up a Life to you. Here you can hang a Remembrance tag in honour of your loved ones or you can post them back to Beaumond to hang on the tree of your preference.
