National disability charity, United Response invites the public to its annual Christmas carol concert in the stunning St Peter’s Church at Eaton Square on Wednesday 2nd December 2015.  Londoners, locals, supporters, friends and family are all invited to join the charity for carols and mince pies.

The concert will be a wondrous evening for adults and children alike, starting with The Cheriton Warblers singing a welcome outside the church, to the joyous singing of the much-acclaimed Seaford College Choir filling the interior with festive cheer.   Again, Swanbank Music, a local theatre company, will entertain guests with a mix of modern and traditional Christmas music, accompanied by United Response’s deaf choir, The Ipswich Signers, who will sign along to the hymns.

The carol concert will be hosted by the charity’s president, Martyn Lewis CBE, who will talk to specially invited guests about the charity’s achievements throughout this year including welcoming our new Chief Executive, Tim Cooper and an update about our campaigning work from our Political Correspondent, David Allkins.  Finally, the audience will hear about the successes achieved thanks to the financial support for our Community Sparks Appeal, funded by the Clothworkers’ Foundation grant and the generosity of our supporters from last year’s Christmas appeal.

The carol concert starts at 6.30pm and will be followed by refreshments in the function room of the church, where guests will be able to meet carol singers.

All are welcome to this free-of-charge event and guests are asked to be in their seats by 6.15pm for a prompt start at 6.30pm.   

Diane Lightfoot, Director of Policy and Communications at United Response said:

“Our carol concert is a celebration of all the people we support and the community around them including friends, family and carers.”

“The carol concert allows us to acknowledge our achievements over the year and highlight our aspirations for the future.  We welcome everyone to this free event but ask those who can, to make a donation to our Christmas appeal.”
