Thank you to everyone who sang so beautifully and enthusiastically, and to the big-hearted audience who packed out St John at Jerusalem.
Our Christmas concert raised an amazing £1,422 for Hackney Winter Night Shelters.
Thank you to Dan and Andy for ensuring we performed so well with such a varied programme, to St John of Jerusalem for hosting, and to the Festival Chorus for their generous assistance.
