Over £3000 raised for GrowTH!

2019 was our 7th year in a row raising funds for the brilliant GrowTH night shelter, this time at our packed-out Christmas concert Just Sing a Christmas Song on 12th December 2019.

The gig took its name from a song from Broadway’s Elf the Musical, and also included festive favourites such as Winter Wonderland and Sleigh Ride. We also partied festively with bangers such as Ain’t No Mountain High Enough and Africa, and finished off the evening on an epic audience singalong of All I Want For Christmas Is You!

The concert raised a massive £3004 for GrowTH! (With match funding from Skyscanner and Deutsche Bank, this total will rise to just over £8000 for this concert, taking our fundraising total for GrowTH to date to £29,471 – amazing!) Thank you so much to everyone who came along to celebrate Christmas with us and made this possible.

GrowTH provides emergency shelter for homeless men and women in the borough, as well as supporting the guests into more permanent housing and jobs. To find out more, visit www.thisisgrowth.org.

£2429 Raised for GrowTH this Christmas!

We had a brilliant time at our gig on 13th December – thank you to everyone who came along to celebrate Christmas with us, and the brilliant team at St Paul’s Shadwell for hosting!

The Choir Is So Delightful took the audience on a journey through Christmas classics old and new (via a Broadway hit, some indie pop, and a sea shanty, naturally), as well as through epic singalongs of The 12 Days of Christmas (with actions!) and Fairytale of New York, such fun!

For the sixth year in a row we were raising money for the brilliant GrowTH night shelter, and had a goal of taking our grand total to date over £20K. Well, we did it! Through ticket sales and everyone’s generous donations on the night, the concert raised a total of £2,429.10, which will be almost doubled through generous match funding from Deutsche Bank and Skyscanner. Thank you to everyone involved in making this happen!

logo_growthIn their 2017/18 season, GrowTH provided night shelter and meals for 141 homeless men and women, and helped secure more permanent accommodation for 57. They also provide supported housing in four flats, supporting tenants with job seeking, gaining skills and accessing healthcare. We were delighted to welcome guests and volunteers of the shelter to join us for rehearsals and the concert again this season. To find out more about GrowTH’s work visit www.thisisgrowth.org.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year one and all!
