Have you been helped by Lord Mayor's Appeal?
FOR 34 years the Post carol concert has been helping to raise money for the Lord Mayor's Children's Appeal.
In that time thousands of people have made their way to the Colston Hall for what many regard as the start of Christmas.
The concert under the musical direction of John Marsh features choirs and musicians from all over the Bristol area.
And of course it gives people plenty of opportunities to join in with traditional carols.
The money raised from ticket sales and a collection on the night goes towards the Lord Mayor's Children's Appeal which helps underprivileged youngsters across the city.
The cash pays for vouchers which are given to families to buy presents and food.
These vouchers can genuinely make all the difference for children who might otherwise not receive gifts.
Over the years literally thousands of families have benefited from the concert and the appeal.
Post editor Mike Norton said: "For me the Post carol concert always marks the beginning of Christmas and everyone at the Post looks forward to it."
This year we would like to mark the countdown to the concert on December 10 by asking people for their memories of these evenings.
Mr Norton said: "We would also like to hear from anyone who has been helped by the Lord Mayor's Children's Appeal. perhaps you received vouchers to buy your family food and presents.
"We often hear letters read out at the carol concert from parents who have been given vouchers that have really helped to make their Christmas special.
"Perhaps your Mum or Dad wrote one of those letters or perhaps you were one of the children who received a special toy thanks to the appeal.
"Whatever your memories we would love to hear them. We will publish as many as we can."
You can send your memories to Lord Mayor's Christmas Appeal and Concert memories, c/0 Rob Stokes, The Post, temple Way, Bristol BS99 7HD or email firstname.lastname@example.org and mark your email Lord Mayor's Christmas Appeal and Concert.
