In an evening of delight and sparkle, the event was graced by the presence of esteemed actor Greg Wise, and beloved broadcasters Angela Rippon and Joanna Gosling. The concert is held each year as a fundraiser for Carers Trust’s work to support unpaid carers.

The distinguished guests captivated the audience with festive readings and a stirring musical performance by the City of London Choir, who sang under the expert baton of Hilary Davan Wetton and were joined by the award-winning classical soprano, Margaret Keys. Incidentally, Margaret will soon be enjoying her honeymoon at an IDILIQ resort after winning our auction prize last year.

Greg Wise delivered an enchanting rendition of Dylan Thomas's A Child’s Christmas in Wales, Angela Rippon held the audience spellbound with Clement Clarke Moore’s A Visit from St Nicholas, while Joanna Gosling painted a vivid Christmas scene from Louisa May Alcott’s timeless masterpiece, Little Women.

This year, the event was privileged to have young adult carer, Elena Vissani, who moved everyone with her impassioned and poignant closing appeal.
The funds generated by the concert are vital for unpaid carers grappling with escalating household expenses. Constrained by their caregiving responsibilities and unable to supplement their income, many unpaid carers are hard-pressed to navigate the cost-of-living crisis. Meanwhile, they must ensure their ill and disabled loved ones remain warm and safe.
