SNAPSHOT: Carol collection

Tuneful charity supporters have been making the most of London's refurbished Trafalgar Square by taking part in a programme of free carol concerts in the shadow of the traditional Norwegian Christmas tree to raise money for their favourite causes. The programme began on 6 December with the Holy Cross Church choir, which was singing to raise money for the Children's Society, and was followed by a performance by Amnesty International supporters. The concerts, which are free to members of the public on most evenings, will continue throughout December. Money is raised through collection boxes. "The carol concerts and the Norwegian Christmas tree will bring some truly festive spirit to the square, for Londoners as well as visitors, with money raised going to some very worthy causes," said Mayor of London, Ken Livingston. "What better way to spend an hour or two before a night on the town, or on your way home."
