Carol Concert to Help Homeless

SPEAR Christmas Carol

We generally don’t give individual events their own story on the main news feed of this site. Why? It’s a careful blend of editorial policy and sheer laziness, that’s why. But we’ve made an exception here because it relates to the excellent local charity SPEAR. Based in Twickenham but working right across the borough of Richmond, SPEAR help homeless and other vulnerable people to transform their lives, build new skills and increase their self-esteem. The event in question is a fundraising carol concert on Wednesday 4th December, 19.00 to 21.00 at St John the Divine Church in central Richmond. The Richmond Choral Society will be there to help make you sound good and, of course, there’ll be mince pies too. Tickets cost £10 for adults and £5 children.

P.S. You can find out more about SPEAR on their website and we’re sure they’d happily take a donation from you if you felt inclined. And you may remember that last year we raised money for SPEAR in a ‘Christmas appeal’ through the generous donations of readers of this website. That donations page is still live and so if you want to donate through that page we’re sure SPEAR would happily accept that too.

  1. Sadly homelessness is on the increase in UK..and it’s not down to bad behaviour of people eg drugs and alcoholism .many factors like benefit cuts and changes..and a crank science industry on the payroll of certain corporate entities …disability denial industry …very sad …
