It was the season to be very jolly for fundraisers collecting pennies and pounds in Highgate over Christmas as they managed to raise more than £1,500 for a hospice.

Volunteers were full of good will to all men as they sung carols for commuters at Highgate Tube station in Archway Road last month.

Stirring renditions of Away in a Manger, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and Deck the Halls meant that the event, now in its fourth year, raised more than £1,500 for the North London Hospice, based in Enfield.

Organiser Neil O’Shea said: “During four evening sessions 10 impressive singers sang their hearts out to spread goodwill and Christmas spirit to weary travellers returning from work.

“Highgate [station] has the longest escalators in London so we had a captive audience for a while.

“The public were very generous and glad to see us. I would like to say a big thank you to those who gave generously.”
