Christmas came early to Hatters and Claytons when they welcomed the Tibbs Dementia Foundation carol singers into the store to entertain shoppers and raise vital funds for the charity.

The singers were welcomed by Matthew Garner, MD of Hatters and the managing director of Claytons, Matt Sweeting and generous customers donated to the collection buckets and bought raffle tickets.

The lucky winner took home a Fortnum & Mason Christmas hamper, kindly donated by Claytons.

The choir sang festive favourites including Ding Dong Merrily on High, While Shepherds Watched and Good King Wenceslas.

Customers may have twigged some of the singers had been at the festive fizz when the Twelve Days of Christmas began, complete with all the actions. The carollers ended the session with a rendition of White Christmas – a dream that might just come true this year.  

Tibbs CEO, Sarah Russell, said: “A huge thank you to our hosts, Hatters and Claytons, who have been such brilliant supporters of Tibbs Dementia Foundation and its work to help families live better with dementia, throughout the charity’s 10th anniversary year.”
