The Arreton Community Centre on the Isle of Wight hosted 75 supporters for a carol evening.
Howard Johnson had the crowd in stitches with his witty readings and renditions, while Karen Sheath performed on the piano. Ladies from the Isle of Wight committee provided homemade refreshments.
Sally Field, regional manager for the South East, said: “Thank you to everyone who helped out on the night. We thought it spelled disaster when our compere fell ill, but Geoff Case and Mike Morris stepped in to help coordinate the songs and readings. The event wouldn’t have been a success without them.”
