Gather and sing to make a real difference for children this Christmas
Singing carols to raise money for us is a great way to celebrate the Christmas festivities and bring brighter futures to children in urgent need.
Every pound your singing raises will make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable children, such as the young carers we support who bear responsibilities beyond their years.
Sing and collect with friends, colleagues, your church, choir, scouts group or sports club. However you choose to do it, we have lots of resources to help you get festive and show your support.
How to get carolling
Get some inspiring ideas for your event and read our top planning tips.
Pick a date and invite friends, family, neighbours and colleagues to sing and collect.
Arrange the venue, picking a prime spot and time, and put it in your group’s calendar.
Download and order our free festive materials, including carol singing guide, invitations and books of carols.
Then pay in the donations you collect to help The Children’s Society provide support, care and protection for children facing the harsh effects of poverty and neglect.
If we receive your donations by 26 January, your name will be popped into a Santa hat for a draw to win a prize from our corporate supporters – a hamper of goodies from Traidcraft or a meal for four at Bella Italia.
What our carol singers say
Read about our High Wycombe group, which has been carol singing for nearly 30 years.
Kate, who organises a carol singing group in her office said: 'We had such great fun with our 'team versus team' carol-singing challenge – everyone was really generous, so we raised such a great amount for this wonderful charity!'
