Councillor Chris Towe, the Mayor of Walsall, enjoyed many festivities on the day including Christmas carol singing, saxophone playing and the all-important light switch-on.

The event was organised by one of the Mayor’s chosen charities for the year, Well Wishers, who he thanked for all their hard work.

“ It was a real honour for me to be invited to switch on the lights at the Manor Hospital.
I would like to thank well-wishers for all the great work they do, not only today but throughout the year.

I would also like to thank all the Hospital staff for all that they do for the people of Walsall, without you, I don’t know where we would be. “

Another special guest at the event was a little donkey named Declan who was joined by his mum Delilah for a busy day cheering up patients on the Children’s Ward.

Those in attendance were also treated to a first public performance by Walsall Healthcare’s choir who sang ‘Walking In The Air’ from the Snowman film.

Following the switch-on the Mayor took the time to meet people who were in attendance and even joined in with a festive sing-along.
