This year has been a time like no other and with Christmas fast approaching, Simon Cowell has pledged his support to help those in need by taking part in an online charity Christmas spectacular.
Stephen Fry will be hosting the virtual Christmas concert to raise funds for The Felix Project and The Childhood Trust.
The concert will feature a host of big names including Simon Cowell, Craig David and Emeli Sande. It is hoped the project will raise desperately needed money to help feed the most vulnerable through the COVID 19 crisis.
This year its annual gathering, the Fayre of St James’s, which is usually held in St James’s Church in Piccadilly, will take place online.
Since the start of lockdown, the Felix Project, the partner for the Evening Standard’s Food For London Now campaign, has delivered more than 13.5 million meals and the funds donated have helped it deliver nearly two million meals a month. However they expect an even bigger demand over the Christmas period as the second government lockdown has left many families in desperate situations.
On the 1st December Quintessentially Foundation in partnership with Tesco, will host the 9th annual Fayre of St James’s Christmas carol concert, in aid of The Childhood Trust and The Felix Project, this year in a virtual format. This year is even more important than ever, it will help raise critical funds for The Childhood Trust and The Felix Project, whose vital work helping the most vulnerable in our society, is needed now more than ever in these very uncertain times.
This magical concert will be hosted virtually for an evening of carols, magical performances, festive readings and Christmas cheer, and a silent auction with an array of exceptional must-have prizes.
