Fulham Camerata Choir hold festive singalong at Holy Cross

A celebration of carols is being staged by Fulham Camerata Choir under the banner The Spirit of Christmas.

The singalong concert takes place at Holy Cross church, Fulham, on Sunday 10 December at 7pm.

James Day is musical director for the evening, which is free, but with a suggested donation of £10 for entry. Mulled wine and mince pies will be served.

The charity Glass Door will benefit from the concert. It is a project which works with churches in Hammersmith & Fulham and other parts of west London to provide safe housing for more than 100 homeless men and women through the winter, and hot suppers.

A spokeswoman for the charity said: “We’re extremely thankful for all the support shown to us by local community groups like Fulham Camerata Choir.

“They are a local group engaging local people in supporting local causes, and it’s a great example of how when we work together, we can make our community a better place for everyone. I think local groups realise that the funds they raise will translate directly into someone being able to stop sleeping on public buses, under bridges or awnings and allow them to find a warm welcome and a safe place to sleep in a local church hall. 

“Working together, we can bring shelter and support to those in the community who have nowhere else to go.” 

The evening of carols for choir and audience follows hard on the heels of the choir’s successful performance of The Messiah by candlelight in November.

Holy Cross church is in Ashington Road, Fulham.
