Carols at Holy Trinity raise thousands for NSPCC’s Childline
Stars from the world of music, art and media were out in force on 11 December to support the NSPCC’s ‘Merry Little Christmas Concert’ at Holy Trinity Church, Sloane Street
Supported by Cadogan and Good Housekeeping, the event raised over £34,000 to help Childline be there for children in need of support this Christmas.
The event was hosted by Childline founder Dame Esther Rantzen DBE and featured performances from Irish classical soprano Margaret Keys and critically acclaimed singer and songwriter Lucy Mason. Guests were treated to readings from actress Alison Steadman OBE, journalist Martin Bashir and renowned art dealer Philip Mould OBE. Ely Cathedral Girls’ Choir also performed and attendees joined together to sing traditional carols.
Every Christmas there are thousands of children who get in touch with Childline because they have nowhere else to turn. The money raised from the concert will provide a vital lifeline, enabling over 8,500 calls from young people to be answered. Childline is the only service open to children 24/7 during the festive period.
