Isle of Dogs choir plans busy fundraising Christmas
An Isle of Dogs choir is gearing up for a busy Christmas schedule to raise money for a homeless charity.
The London Docklands Singers (LDS), who were set up in 1992 and who practise at Christ Church in Manchester Road, have a strong record of fundraising, having given over �2,500 to Help for Heroes with a November concert.
In the run up to Christmas, they will sing carols to commuters in Canary Wharf on December 15 and hold a carol-singing pub walk around Greenwich and the Isle of Dogs on December 17.
On December 19 they will put on a concert at The Space in West Ferry Road with proceeds from all these events to go to national charity Crisis.
Chorister and LDS manager Amelie Handke said: “It’s always fun to sing carols at Christmas but we like to keep charity in mind as well and we’re glad to give the proceeds from our Christmas events to Crisis, whose mission is so important at this time of year.”
