The Friends of Hebden Bridge Station have arranged annual Carols For Travellers on Wednesday, December 16, between 5.30pm and 6.45pm at Hebden Bridge Railway Station - all welcome to take part, voices and instruments.

It is supported by local churches and choirs, andNorthern Rail. One of the organisers, David Storr, said: “This event has been running for several years and is well supported by the local community as a way of bringing seasonal greetings to those travelling by train at Christmastime.

“During the singing a collection is held for the Railway Children, and last year we were able to send over £100 to this charity for the work they do among abandoned children in and around railway stations in several countries. I’d like us to at least match this amount in 2015.”
