Since 1958 the then Yorkshire Evening Press Toy Fund along with the Lord Mayor ond Sheriff of York's Christmas Cheer Fund had always been the charities supported by York's Annual Community Carol Concert.
From 1986 the newspaper decided to choose a different charity to benefit each year from the festive concert. Since then numerous local charities have received thousands of pounds in donations.
This year, The Press have nominated The Snappy Trust as their chosen charity. A small charity based in York, dedicated to maximising the personal development of children and young people with wide ranging disabilities.
Service Manager, Anne Stamp, said: “The Snappy Trust is absolutely delighted to have been selected as The Press nominated charity. We have been operating in York since 1985 and many of our families will have attended the Carol Concert in previous years. We are so proud that this year we have been chosen.”
Appearing on stage at York Barbican on Sunday 17 December at 2.00 pm will be the Shepherd Group Youth Brass Band, Badger Hill Primary School, Track 29 Ladies Close Harmony Chorus, York Stage School and Steve Cassidy. Hosted by Rev Andrew Foster and Adam Tomlinson with Mike Pratt conducting the community carols.
