Carol singing is an entertaining, fun and festive way to help raise thousands of pounds for disadvantaged children - organise your carol singing event for this Christmas.

Thank you to everyone who got in the festive spirit and sung carols last year to raise valuable funds for disadvantaged children. Your singing will allow us to provide a lifeline to more children and young people this year.
