We hosted our annual Kensington Light up a Life carol service at the beautiful St Mary the Bolton’s Church on Thursday 3 December.

Around 200 guests from the local community came together in remembrance and celebration of their loved ones and to support their local hospice The congregation lit candles, sung carols and enjoyed readings from a variety of special guests, including prize-winning author, Marion Coutts and acclaimed actor Sir Timothy Ackroyd.

Trinity’s Light up a Life Appeal hopes to raise £50,000 to fund a specialist Trinity nurse for a year. We would like to thank everyone who donated to the collection on the night, which raised £2,600 to support the vital work of Trinity’s nurses. You can still support the appeal now by clicking here.

Trinity would like to thank The Brownie Box, Maison Blanc and Gail’s Bakery for their generous donations of mince pies, and Davy and Co. for the wine enjoyed by all after the service. A special thank you goes to Susan Metcalfe Residential for sponsoring the event and to the Bousfield School choir and London Concert Choir for their fantastic performances on the evening.

Trinity would like to thank everyone who attended or donated to this vital appeal.
