The Grosvenor Chapel is thrilled to announce it is taking part in an unusual carol singing experience this Wednesday 1st December from 6pm. Members of the chapel’s congregation, joined by the Mayfair Community Choir, staff from the parish primary school alongside volunteers from local law firm Forsters LLP, will be singing from an open-topped bus from 6 – 7.30pm to raise money for the Healthcare Workers Foundation, a charity founded during the pandemic by NHS doctors and nurses to support the wellbeing of healthcare professionals across the country. The event will launch the charity’s “Merry Christmas NHS” campaign.
The congregation and local volunteers will be joined by three professional opera-trained singers: Claire Sutton-Williams (soprano), Will Davies (tenor), George Roberts (baritone); the event is supported by “Big Bus Tour”, providing the bus, and the New West End Company. The bus will be stopping in Berkeley Square, 140 Park Lane, Grosvenor Square, Wigmore Street, Regent Street. Piccadilly, Haymarket, Green Park and Grosvenor Chapel, so keep your eyes (and ears) peeled around the area to catch them.
“Everyone knows with what dedication and under what pressure NHS healthcare workers are labouring at present,” says the Grosvenor Chapel’s Fr Richard Fermer. “We wanted to do something in recognition, which would offer support. What better way than championing a charity founded by doctors and nurses to address staff well-being. We wish all healthcare workers a very blessed Christmas.”
