This year, the Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News Carols for Christmas service will take place at St Peter Mancroft Church, Norwich, on Tuesday, December 11.

The stunning medieval church will serve as the perfect backdrop for the service, which will be filled with Christmas cheer to raise funds for a worthy cause.

Proceeds from the service will go towards Norwich-based charity The Hamlet Centre, which provides recreational, educational and social opportunities for children and adults with profound disabilities and complex health needs.

EDP and Norwich Evening News editor David Powles said: “Our Christmas service is one of my highlights of the festive period and the perfect way to get in the mood and be reminded what it’s all about. With the added bonus of raising money for a great cause too.

“Tickets sell very fast, so I would urge people not to hang around and to snap them up now.”

The Hamlet Centre supports more than 500 families, children and adults each year at their two centres in Norwich, at Ella Road and Johnson Place.

Established in 1972, the charity has evolved from its beginnings as a toy library into a charity offering a range of services for children and adults from birth.

They help to promote integration and inclusion by breaking down barriers that often exist for people with disabilities.
