Councillor Mary Robinson, said: “The Carol Service was a great evening and pupils from Armathwaite School, Ullswater Community College and of course members of Penrith Town Band gave exceptional musical performances. On what was a very cold evening, I would like to thank all those who attended the service and who gave so generously to support my chosen charities.

“Praise is also due to the High Sheriff of Cumbria, Alistair Wannop, Cumbria’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Peter McCall and the Revered David Sargent for taking part in the service. I would also like to thank Councillor John Thompson, Charlotte Ferguson and Council Officer Louise Fawcett for their help organising the service.”
