APPROPRIATELY, they sang Away in a Manger. More than 900 people went to the annual carol service at Wood Green Animals Shelters on Thursday, December 10.
This was the 22nd year of the event and it raised �4,000 for the shelters' funds including the entry fee and donations on the night.
Providing the music was a combined concert band from Huntingdonshire Regional College and Cambridgeshire Music School, the choir from St Anne's Primary School in Godmanchester and Sawtry Choral.
Father Christmas was there, too, helped by dogs, cats and an alpaca.
Wood Green spokesman Nic Bacon told The Hunts Post: "It was a lovely occasion, there were a few more people there than usual. We had a star appearance by Rusty the dog who came into us without any fur and has now recovered. We showed a video about him and that was quite emotional. The hymns were Hark The Herald Angels Sing, Silent Night and Once in Royal David's City. It was quite an occasion.
