Our Blue Light charity organised a carol concert last night at Salford Cathedral, Chapel Street in support of emergency services.
The concert was in support of the Emergency and Essential services as they came together to celebrate Christmas as well as the great work they do throughout the year.
The concert saw the North West Ambulance Service Choir belt out some Christmas classics including ‘Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer’.
‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’ saw the big man himself make a jolly appearance, waving to the crowd as he made his way down the aisle.
The North West Ambulance Service Choir are a group of friends who work for the North West Ambulance Service who ‘get together to have a bit of a sing and a good time in each other’s company.’
As Christmas carols echoed through the cathedral, hot drinks were served to really bring the festive spirit to Salford.

Jay Marshall, who organised the event said that main aim of the night was to spread awareness and end the ‘stigma’ surrounding mental health as well as ‘give thanks to those people who support us’.
With Christmas being a stressful time, especially for emergency workers, Jay explained how he wanted the night to bring everyone together and celebrate our Emergency Services.
The carol concert did just that and spread the festive cheer throughout the whole cathedral.
Our Blue Light aims to promote the physical and mental well-being of those who work for the emergency and essential services and their families across the United Kingdom.
They do this by the providing information, advice and guidance so that they are able to manage the stress they encounter much better.
