UAL Carols raises £160+ for LGBTQ+ homeless young people

We had a lovely time at the UAL Carols service, where this year the students and staff voices were helped out not just by the wonderful St George’s Bloomsbury choir, but by the visitors who attended after reading about the event in a list of the 10 best carol services in London (we didn’t promote it but nonetheless we appreciate the compliment!)

We also very much appreciate the generosity of everyone who donated to akt’s winter pathways appeal  for LGBTQ+ homeless young people;  £160 cash was collected on the night, with others donating online at
