Paramedics in Isleworth have recorded a Christmas song in aid of wounded troops and the emergency services.

Graham Card, duty officer at Isleworth Ambulance Station, performed his take on festive favourite 'Have a Holly Jolly Christmas' at the station in Mogden Lane.

He was joined by team leader Chris Braybrook on trombone, with other staff playing a silent but entertaining role on their air guitars and saxophones in the background.

The video has now been published on YouTube, with Mr Card asking viewers to donate £1 to London's Air Ambulance or Help for Heroes if they like the song.

The 55-year-old grandfather-of-six said he wanted to do something for charity and to thank staff for their hard work during a demanding year.

"It's a very stressful job and every now and then you have to release that stress and have a bit of fun," he said.

"We had a great laugh recording the song and it was a good way to unwind ahead of what's likely to be a challenging winter."

The lyrics were altered slightly to include thank yous to doctors, nurses and the military, and to ask listeners to 'kiss a paramedic for me'.

Mr Card, who lives in Pinner, is no stranger to performing. Away from the day job, he does a swing Buddy Holly set at Hounslow Conservative Club, in Osterley.

He has recorded other songs as 'Paramedic Graham', including Mr Bojangles, which had more than 1,000 views on YouTube. However, this is the first one he has dedicated to staff at the station, where about 90 people work.
