Order of Malta carol concert in London raises funds to help the homeless

In the cold mid winter, a full church, softly flickering candles, splendid Christmas ceremony, and traditional carol singing: the London Companions of the Order organised their annual event on 8 December, attended by members, friends and volunteers who came together, prayed together, sang together.

The concert, held at St James’s Spanish Place, is a fundraiser which goes towards supporting the Order’s soup kitchens in London, Oxford, Colchester, northern Scotland. This December the Companions have packed almost a thousand Christmas parcels of clothing and toiletries which they have distributed around the country to the poor and the homeless.
