We’re delighted to report that we’ve raised £342.24 from our Twinkle Tube sessions in cooperation with several London Underground stations. Over two days, London City Singers performed and sang Christmas carols at four stations – Westminster, Charing Cross, Covent Garden and Oval – to raise money for Roko 20 Academy and Macmillan Cancer Support.
Roko 20 Academy opened in January 2014 to educate orphans and disadvantaged children in the rural area outside of Murang’a, Kenya. One of our members, Hazel, participated in this project first hand, which made the fundraising activity a bit more special.
Many thanks goes to the staff and management at the tube stations, of course, with special mentions to Pele and Jon at Covent Garden and Anthony at Oval. Without their cooperation, our fundraising efforts wouldn’t have been possible. They were also amazing in providing us with photos and videos of our performance and sharing them on social media!
The wonderful @LCSchorus graced our station yesterday with good Christmas cheer and merriment. #HappyChristmas

Lastly but definitely not least, we’re grateful for the generosity of the public. Thank you so much for giving as well as appreciating our performances over these two days. Our recorded Christmas carols will continue to play over the tannoy at these tube stations during the festive season. Do tweet us @LCSchorus if you do hear it!
Happy Christmas to everyone!
