Carols By Candlelight at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral raised an amazing ₤9,000 for the NSPCC

THE NSPCC's biggest fundraising event in Liverpool this year raised an amazing ₤9,000 to support children and young people this month. Carols By Candlelight was a sell out event which saw 1,500 people visit Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral to enjoy an evening of music from choirs including:- PopVox, Connected Voices, Madeleine's LIPA student choir and Wirral Schools Concert Band. The evening was sponsored by Home Bargains, hosted by Bishop Tom Williams, and included a guest reading of:- 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' by former BBC radio Presenter Billy Butler, with every penny of the ticket sales going to support the NSPCC.

Bishop Tom Williams praised the:- "meticulous preparation" of organisers, to ensure the event was safe, as well as the quality of the performers. Bishop Williams said:- "The service went extremely well, and the choice of the choirs and the music fitted in perfectly with both the Cathedral and the charity. I'm so pleased that such a huge sum was raised in support of the NSPCC and wish everyone who attended every blessing."

Landmarks across the UK, including Liverpool ONE's Christmas tree and the Martin Luther King building at Albert Dock, lit up green on 21 December; the longest night of the year; to highlight Childline's place as a beacon in the dark for children and young people in Merseyside and across the UK.

Janette Drew, NSPCC community fundraising manager, organised the event, and said it was wonderful to see so many people attending the event; and next year's event was already in the diary for 6 December 2022. Janette said:- "Everyone at the cathedral hosted our event so brilliantly and helped us raise a phenomenal ₤9,000; that would be outstanding in itself but is even more impressive in the midst of a national Pandemic. Every ₤4 raised could help 1 of our Childline volunteers in the Hargreaves Centre, Great Homer Street, answer a call this Christmas from a child who feels they have nowhere else to turn for help, so this will really be an incredible help for children across Merseyside and the rest of the UK."
