Carol concert raised £5,500 for the homeless and the Arthur Rank Hospice

The Rotary Club of Cambridge held a very special Christmas event at Great St Mary's Church, in the centre of Cambridge, on 10 December.

It was in aid of the Cambridge Churches Homeless Project and the Arthur Rank Hospice.

Last year our Carol Concert attracted an audience of around 600 in a most atmospheric setting and was a wonderful lead in to Christmas for people of all ages.

This year the Rotary Club of Cambridge Christmas Concert had six youth and school choirs singing a variety of Christmas music from traditional carols to contemporary Christmas songs with the audience joining in with the carols at the end. The compere was Neil Whiteside of Cambridge 105 Radio.

We have a total of seven sponsors including Cambridge Property Search, Cotto, Coulson Building Group, Hewitsons, Lets Rent Cambridge, Millers Music and Ridgeons.  Cambridge 105 Radio will be recording the event.

Rotarian John Barrett said  “The vitality of the childrens' singing is always uplifting.  It is a great way to celebrate Christmas!”
