The Choir with No Name, an organisation running choirs for people who have experienced homelessness, raised £4367 for local charities at The Big Christmas Singalong, a concert at Brighton Dome on Friday 15 December.
The money will be shared evenly between Brighton Housing Trust, The Clock Tower Sanctuary and The Choir with No Name.
The Choir with No Name’s annual event is fast becoming a stalwart in the Christmas calendar, and their rousing 2017 concert included a host of festive favourites, from ‘Winter Wonderland’ to ‘I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day’. There were over 170 homeless singers on stage, with members from our Liverpool and Birmingham choirs travelling the length of the country to get there.
The Choir with No Name provides welcoming choir communities for those who have been affected by homelessness or are marginalised due to other factors, such as mental health problems or drug and alcohol addiction. Members get a hot, nutritious meal after each weekly rehearsal and have the opportunity to make friends, learn new skills and get themselves back on their feet.

A huge thanks to Brighton Dome for having us back there for our Big Christmas Singalong 2017. Not only did we have the most brilliant night, we are bowled over by the generosity of the audience and amazed at the amount raised! Thank you to everyone who came along and dug deep to support not only The Choir with No Name, but also Brighton Housing Trust and The Clock Tower Sanctuary.
Marie Benton, CEO and Founder of The Choir with No Name
