Britain’s Christmas Singalong

It’s a new Christmas tradition!

 

 

  • Doorstep Carols returns this year to unite the nation in song on Wednesday, December 15th at 6pm, supported by local BBC radio and BBC Sounds. It has been adopted as the Local BBC Radio ‘Make a Difference’ campaign, following BBC Children in Need.
  • The free, inclusive, charitable event aims to promote the social and psychological benefits of singing together again after the pandemic
  • It is supported by: Sir Tim Rice, British Conductor Suzi Dibgy OBE, Military Wives Choirs, Popchoir, Voices Foundation and Project Get Singing, among others
  • This year is a combination of ‘hub’ events nationwide and singing in the streets – tune in to local radio, download the words at doorstepcarols.co.uk and SING!
  • We can provide a list of media contacts/interview opportunities on request

Community engagement is central to this event, to encourage people to rally their streets and join together in song. This a free, wholly inclusive, mass participatory, charitable event with no commercial intent, designed to promote togetherness and strengthen communities. We ask the media to please help us achieve our vision to create a new Christmas tradition.

Community Resource, formerly known as Shropshire Rural Communities Charity (RCC), has launched its appeal to raise funds to give out as grants for emergency fuel, debt relief and energy-saving improvements in people’s homes across the County, including our Parish.

The Warmer Winter Appeal has given out over £79,000 and helped more than 200 households facing fuel poverty in the county since it launched 10 years ago.

More than 23,000 households in Shropshire are living in fuel poverty; higher than the UK average.  A large number of homes in our county are also ‘off gas’ so fuel choice is limited and can be expensive.

Community Resource partners with referral agencies to find people most in need and provide them with grants and energy saving measures.  It also works to raise awareness about how households can make simple changes to reduce their costs while still keeping warm.
