The Wellington Friends Group of the Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) will be on hand to serve refreshments at Langford Lakes Christmas Tree Farm’s seven late-night openings in December when there will be ‘Christmassy entertainment’ for shoppers.
The late-night evenings on December 1, 6, 7, 8, 13, 14 and 15 will feature music from Wiveliscombe Community Wind Band, Wiveliscombe Community Choir, Absolute Pitch, the HOPE choir and solo singers Elizabeth Rhodes and Allana Chloe.
Reg Hendy, from Langford Lakes Christmas Tree Farm at Langford Budville, explained: “With less than 100 days until Christmas we’re getting set to open – and we’ll be open every day until Saturday, 23rd December.
“Due to the popularity of our late-night open evenings in 2016 and to fit around people’s busy festive schedules, we’ve decided to host seven late-night open evenings this December.
“We’re hoping to collect as much money as possible on the evenings for CHSW. We’ll be offering mince pies and teas and coffees for a donation to the charity. Last year we managed to raise £2,686 for the organisation throughout December.
“Our Christmas shop is even bigger and better than ever before and we’ve hundreds of tree toppers and thousands of baubles in stock this year. We also stock fresh, handmade Christmas wreaths and all the decorations you could need to give your home some added sparkle this year.”
CHSW is currently the only provider of specialist hospice care for children in the region. It offers much needed support for youngsters with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition and their families at its three hospices: Charlton Farm in North Somerset, Little Bridge House in North Devon and Little Harbour in Cornwall.
Langford Lakes Christmas Tree Farm is open every day from Friday, November 17 at 10am until Saturday, December 23. To view its full opening times, please visit http://www.langfordlakes.co.uk.
