Star-studded Christmas carol service to support Hospice UK

Nov 13, 2017

Screenwriter and actor Lord Julian Fellowes and actresses Dame Sian Phillips DBE and Richenda Carey will be among the line-up of celebrities attending Hospice UK’s Christmas carol service to raise vital funds for hospice care.

The event will take place at the stunning St Luke’s Church in Chelsea on Tuesday 19 December.

Those attending will enjoy an evening of traditional carols, music and celebrity readings, followed by mulled wine and mince pies.

Other notable guests include: TV presenter Matt Johnson, who will be doing a reading, tenor David Webb, who will be singing at the service and Lord Howard of Lympne, Chair of Hospice UK and his wife Lady Sandra Howard who will also attend.

As the national charity for hospice care, Hospice UK champions and supports the work of more than 200 member organisations which provide hospice care to around 200,000 people across the UK each year.

This support helps hospices to deliver the highest quality care for people with life-limiting conditions and also support their families.

Funds raised from the carol service will go towards Hospice UK’s national work for hospices and help ensure that everyone who needs hospice care receives this.

Catherine Bosworth, Director of Income Generation at Hospice UK said:

“We hope as many people as possible will come along for some festive fun at our event to help raise much-needed funds for hospice care.

“As well as the chance to sing your favourite Christmas carols, there will be plenty of opportunity to eat, drink and be merry over mulled wine and mince pies.”
