It has become a tradition for members of the congregation from St Mary with St Alban in Teddington to meet at the Anglers, the picturesque pub situated on the Thames next to the lock, to sing carols and raise funds for the work of Welcare. This year we were delighted to be joined by the ‘new’ vicar, Rev David Cloake and his family.
There is a lively and festive atmosphere, and this annual event provides a welcome opportunity to catch up with friends and supporters and recruit new ones. I
The carol singing wouldn’t happen without many people giving up their time at a busy time of year but special thanks go to Margaret Squire (pictured) and Rev David Cloake for organising the evening and sporting such festive headgear.
This year we raised £537 with all donations going to our Families in Crisis appeal.
