We helped St Mungo’s homeless choir spread the magic of Christmas through significant media coverage in December including appearances on ITV West, BBC Radio Bristol and the Evening Post.
The choir were performing in a number of Christmas carol concerts throughout the region, which have helped to raise the profile of the charity and informed people of the great work that they are doing to help homeless people to get off the streets.
ITV West came along to film the choir’s final rehearsal before a Christmas Eve performance and interviewed Choir leader and St Mungo’s Deputy Manager Jenny Riley who was thrilled by the level of interest.
Jenny was also invited to the BBC Radio Bristol studios along with a choir member to discuss their work and the impact that the choir has on its members.
The St Mungo’s Community Choir has around 15 members including people who have experienced homelessness, staff members from the Compass Centre and people from the local community. They were formed in 2009 and rehearse every Thursday evening at St Mungo’s Compass Centre.
