Mitchell Group raised £4,385 for the Mercy Ships charity when it attracted over 1,100 carol-singing customers to its 11th annual Christmas Carol event.
Held at Chester Cathedral on December 7, the Christmas Carol event saw more than 1100 people attended to sing traditional carols, led by Stuart Townend and his folk band.
Throughout the evening, customers enjoyed a variety of activities culminating in consuming an amazing 1,743 mince pies and 1017 cups of mulled wine.
The charity runs four hospital ships around the world, providing much needed medical care to those in need.
Cheshire Oaks-based Mitchell Group is sponsoring the charity as a thank you to David Roberts, who has been MC at this “Sing your heat out” evening for the past 10 years.
Mitchell Group’s managing director, Mark Mitchell (pictured), said: “We are delighted to have raised so much money for Mercy Ships this year to assist them with their incredible work.
“The floating hospital provides life-saving support to some of the poorest people in the world and we are immensely proud to be supporting this.”
This year, Diane-Louise Jordan, past presenter of Blue Peter (continuing the nautical theme) and BBC Songs of Praise, delivered a humerous and warm Christmas message.
The full house was also treated to an exclusive jazz performance from local classic car enthusiast and friend of Mitchell Group, Iain Tyrrell.
