Edinburgh's Sick Kids hospital's Carols for Christmas service raised a final total of more than £22,000.

The event, which took place last month, was nearly disrupted by snow, with a choir and several readers having to cancel at the last minute but the service went ahead at St Cuthbert's Church regardless.

A spokesman said: "Many thanks to everyone that managed to brave the elements and to make it.

We're pleased to announce that over £22,000 was raised on the night."
