LET there be light.

A Christmas tree decked out with twinkling blue lights will greet rail passengers as they arrive in Sheffield station, thanks to St Luke’s Hospice.

The Lord Mayor of Sheffield was guest of honour as the charity held a switch-on event as part of its Festival of Light.

The angelic voices of children from Westbourne School, accompanied by Oughtibridge Brass Band rang out through the station as Coun John Campbell pushed the button to light up the tree. As passers-by stopped to enjoy the festivities, Coun Campbell seized the opportunity to show his support for the hospice and encourage people to donate to the charity.

He said: “The hospice serves the people of Sheffield regardless of age, cultural background or religion and supports around 5,000 people every year.”
