Festive carol singers raise £1,500 for north London hospice at Highgate Tube Station
It was the season to be very jolly for fundraisers collecting pennies and pounds in Highgate over Christmas as they managed to raise more than £1,500 for a hospice.
Volunteers were full of good will to all men as they sung carols for commuters at Highgate Tube station in Archway Road last month.
Stirring renditions of Away in a Manger, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and Deck the Halls meant that the event, now in its fourth year, raised more than £1,500 for the North London Hospice, based in Enfield.
Organiser Neil O’Shea said: “During four evening sessions 10 impressive singers sang their hearts out to spread goodwill and Christmas spirit to weary travellers returning from work.
“Highgate [station] has the longest escalators in London so we had a captive audience for a while.
