A refugee choir has appealed for support for their Christmas fundraiser, launched in an effort to raise £10,000 to keep the choir going.
The Citizens of the World Refugee Choir is selling tote bags, mugs, tea towels, baby grows, cards and stickers and encouraging donations of up to £5 per month.
Citizens of the World is the UK’s leading refugee choir, representing 28 nationalities, 30 countries of origin, and over 50 members. They have performed at the Royal Opera House, at Glastonbury, with rock band Elbow and even in front of the Queen at her Platinum Jubilee.
Their mission is simple: to celebrate the voices of people seeking sanctuary and changing the narrative around migration.
I sat down with musical director Becky Dell to find out why the Christmas fundraiser is so important for the Greenwich based choir.
