A festive fundraiser in aid of young burns patients is set to fill Northampton’s Market Square with Christmas music.
Organised by firefighters at The Mounts fire station, the Christmas in the Square event is taking place from 6pm on Thursday 14 December.
It will feature live music and carols, food and drink, a vintage fire engine and even a visit from Father Christmas.
The event is free to attend, and is raising money for the Children’s Burns Trust. The charity provides rehabilitation support for burned and scald injured children and their families, and also runs prevention and awareness campaigns.
Event organiser Steve Corcoran, a firefighter in Blue Watch at The Mounts, said: “We chose to support the Children’s Burns Trust because it’s a cause very close to our hearts. Through our job we regularly see people lose possessions or their property in a fire, and it’s far worse when someone suffers a life-changing injury, especially a child.
“The charity doesn’t receive any government funding, and relies on public donations and community fundraising so please put your Christmas hats on and join us for a mince pie, a glass of mulled cider and listen to Northampton’s talented artists sing out live Christmas carols, all for a great cause.”
