Carols for Choir and Audience supporting St George’s Hospital Charity £5m Children’s Appeal: It’s Time for a Change

London Concert Choir returns to Holy Trinity Church, Sloane Square for a seasonal concert of traditional and modern Christmas music with the chance for the audience to join in singing the familiar carols.

Funds raised from the carol concert, including an interval bar, conclusion of a silent auction and a retiring collection, will go to St George’s Hospital Charity – specifically to the appeal ‘Time for a Change’ – the improvement of St George’s Hospital children’s wards.

The outstanding care at St George’s is world renowned, but the facilities are not. Built in the 70s, the wards are tired, cramped and uninviting. Lacking space, the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) is unable to treat the number of children who need its world-class care. In desperate need of space, staff have given up their changing facilities and staff rooms to make way for more beds.

The appeal aims to raise £5 million by 2024 to transform children’s services at St George’s by:

  • Expanding paediatric intensive care unit by a third
  • Transforming the wards into bright and welcoming spaces
  • Creating better facilities for staff, who work so tirelessly!
