FIREFIGHTERS are giving poorly children a lift this Christmas by carol singing and collecting donations.
The White Watch crew from Crewe Fire Station will be belting out festive classics outside the entrance of the town's ASDA store in aid of the patients on the children's ward at Leighton Hospital.
Watch manager Paul Rowlands said: 'Being in hospital at Christmas time is a horrible place for a child to be. We're just going to sing some carols, hopefully collect some donations and buy the children some presents.
'We'll have Welephant with us and Father Christmas as well so hopefully we'll brighten up what can be an awful time for the kids at Leighton.'
The firefighters will be at ASDA on Monday at 7pm and would appreciate all kind donations from passing shoppers and members of the public.
Mr Rowlands added: 'It's all for a very good cause and even if people are paying just to shut us up because we're awful, then that'll be just fine!'
