On 12 December, a carol concert was held at St Mary Abbots Church for the Trust. Approximately 500 people attended the service. The Trust is very grateful to Lt. General James Bucknall, Allan Lamb, Kate Silverton and Lord Poltimore all of whom read readings. In addition, the Trust held a drinks reception prior to the service at Kensington Palace for sponsors, readers and friends of the Trust. A total of £20,000 was raised. Thank you to all those who supported this wonderful evening. Special thanks to Jo Richards, Joe Parkin and Jules Vero who organised the event and St Mary Abbots Church for letting us hold the service in their beautiful church.
