Organisers behind an open air carol concert in Woodbridge have hailed the event as one of their best yet, with it thought to have drawn in one of the largest amount in donations.

The 66th Annual Open Air Carol Service was held in the town’s Market Hill on December 20 and - as always - drew in a large crowd.

While the event is free to attend, donations are welcome and this year all proceeds were donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Margaret Kershaw, on behalf of the Rotary Club of Woodbridge, said: “The weather was kind and people were in good spirits with families – often several generations together – joining in with the carols and general fun of Father Christmas appearing on a fire engine and giving out sweets.

“Thanks to the generosity of those present the bucket collection raised £1,126, which will be donated to Macmillan.
