St Andrew the Apostle School choir on Tuesday (20 December) brought festive cheer to Trafalgar Square to help raise money for Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice.

Lively renditions of old and new Christmas carols attracted a large audience of tourists and shoppers who joined in and donated money to the Barnet-based charity.

Noah’s Ark Community Fundraiser, Megan Evans, said: “St Andrew’s has been a long-standing supporter of the Barnet-based charity and we’re delighted that once again they’ve stepped up to help with our Christmas fundraising campaign. We always look forward to their singing and are really grateful for all they do for us.”

Christmas OrchestraLast week, the choir were joined by music and drama students for the annual St Andrew’s Carol Concert featuring Bible readings, drama, traditional carols, modern Christmas songs and instrumentals. Their rendition of “Silent Night” included solos in Greek, Portuguese and Russian.

All proceeds from ticket sales were donated to Unique, a small charity that helps parents and carers better understand their child’s diagnosis of a rare chromosome disorder.

Head of Performing Arts, Kostas Lasithiotakis, said, “We always encourage our pupils to not only serve each other but also get involved in the local community and this year was no exception. The choir and musicians are improving year on year and have built up quite a repertoire of Christmas music which seems to go down well with everyone!”
