Christmas Carols On The River
After last year’s positive feedback, the Traditional Punting Company along with Let’s Go Punting decided to organise the second Christmas Carols On the River. Last year’s charity event raised £572 for Christian Aid, this such success was very much in merit of the Choir from St. John the Evangelist. Apart from the poor weather conditions last year, this amazing Choir was back onboard for another amazing charity event.
Christmas Carols Singing along the River Cam
This year, the Christmas Carols on The River were in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice (EACH), which helps children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk while supporting their families too. We are deeply proud to announce that together we raised £553 for EACH. Thank you to everyone who got involved, this wouldn’t be possible without you all.
We all set sail at 2pm, at the same time the Choir started to sing. The 18 members of the Choir of St John the Evangelist split across two punts, with the addition of the 5 punts full of customers, punting along side. Everyone was listening to the Carols loud and clear for the entirety of the picturesque journey.
During this sunny afternoon, everyone was embracing the festive spirit whilst punting past the most iconic sights of Cambridge. The choir encouraged everyone in the audience to sing along to some of the most well known carols and even our punt chauffeurs joined in by singing and dancing along (all whilst punting).
Spread Christmas cheer, singing loud for all to hear!
This year, Christmas Carols on the River was a magical afternoon where everyone joined together singing as one. We would like to give our very sincere thanks to the Choir of St John the Evangelist for sparkling so bright while making us dream of a wonderful Christmastime. We, the Traditional Punting Company and Let’s Go Punting, are proud to announce that we have donated £120 to the Choir of St. John the Evangelist. We would also like to give thanks to everyone who joined us, who came along to the last event of 2019, you have made it possible to raise £553 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice. Those are the acts of kindness that really matter.
