Christmas Singalong raises £2000 for charity


Pinney Talfourd’s Christmas sing-along at  the Queens Theatre Hornchurch gets whole community into festive mood.
Pinney Talfourd once again teamed up with Queens Theatre Hornchurch in December to host ‘Christmas at the Queens’ – a lively free sing along event for the whole community.

Our fantastic local choir Dawn Chorus joined us to lead the crowd for a series of upbeat Christmas songs including “Let it Snow” and “Jingle Bells” before the Mayor of Havering Brian Eagling joined the stage to say a few words and announce the raffle alongside Managing Partner of Pinney Talfourd, Philip Cockram.

This was a free event but the charity raffle on the day and generous donations raised just over £2,000 in aid of the Queens Theatre charitable trust and Pinney Talfourd’s own charity of the year ‘Bertie’s Battle’. Local businesses rallied to support the event by donating some fabulous prizes from champagne to a signed Tracey Emin print! The full list of gifts is below with acknowledgements. Funds raised are divided equally between the two charities.

This event has attracted a full house every year and this year was no different. Local businesses, Councillors, the community and also a number of our clients checked in for this festive celebration. Many clients with transport difficulties were taken as guests, ensuring that Christmas is not a lonely time after all.

Teas, coffees and cakes were on offer courtesy of Pinney Talfourd after the event to refresh those vocal chords, providing an opportunity to meet new faces and make new friends. Thank you to the Queens Theatre Club volunteers who helped to serve refreshments.
