Carollers to sing for inmates at Remand Centre

  • Print

Community activists will gather at the Remand Centre on Saturday afternoon to spread a bit of holiday cheer by singing to inmates spending the holidays inside.

"Carolling with Conviction" will take place Saturday starting at 3:30 p.m. outside the 141 Kennedy St.

"Carolling with Conviction is an event designed to give a bit of comfort and hope to those who are incarcerated during the holiday season, and to give their friends, family and neighbours a chance to support their loved ones as well as to come together and support one another," reads a press release from organizers of the event.

After the singing is over, carollers can then head to the Broadway Disciples United Church at 396 Broadway Ave. for snacks and hot drinks.

Local radio station CKUW 95.9 FM will record and broadcast the event to those in the Remand Centre in a two-hour "Carolling with Conviction" special on Christmas Day that includes audio of the carolling as well as messages and song requests for inmates inside, from 11 a.m to 1 p.m. and again from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
