Place2Be attends the Together at Christmas carol service
On Friday 8 December, Place2Be was delighted to attend the Together at Christmas carol service.
Hosted by their Royal Highnesses, the Prince and Princess of Wales, the Together at Christmas carol service took place in the wonderful Westminster Abbey.
The service was a time to thank and shine a spotlight on those who work to support children and young people across the UK. The concert celebrated the incredible role they play in raising children and shaping their future.
In attendance from Place2Be were:
- Remi Burgher (Programme Coordinator for Mental Health Workforce)
- Kate Armstrong-Taylor (Programme Leader for Mental Health Workforce)
- Emma Starr (Programme Manager for Mental Health Workforce)
- Carleen Kirk (Post Graduate Diploma – Tutor)
- Ama Dankwa (Programme Leader - Therapeutic Counselling in Schools Level 4)
- Kam Perera (School Project Manager, St John's Primary School).
Joining our colleagues were 11 pupils and their teachers from Place2Be partner school, St John’s Primary School in Bethnal Green. Earlier this year, the school welcomed and filmed with HRH The Princess of Wales to mark Children’s Mental Health Week 2023 and the launch of the Princess’ Shaping Us Campaign.
The service saw the world-renowned Westminster Abbey choir perform festive carol favourites. Guests were also treated to musical performances by Beverley Knight, Adam Lambert, Jacob Collier, Freya Ridings and James Bay.
In 2013, Place2Be became one of the early charities to receive patronage from HRH The Princess of Wales. We have been delighted to introduce The Princess to pupils, families and staff at several Place2Be partner schools and to host her at special events, including our school leaders’ forum.
