A charity event that makes a difference

Childline's Merry Little Christmas Concert 2019 was sponsored by Cadogan Estates and supported by Good Housekeeping as media partner. The event raised an incredible £37,000 towards our Childline service and it was attended by 450 guests. The attendees enjoyed a number of festive readings and performances from famous faces including actress Alison Steadman OBE and renowned art dealer Philip Mould OBE.

The event was also hosted by Childline founder Dame Esther Rantzen DBE and featured performances from Irish classical soprano Margaret Keys, and critically acclaimed singer and songwriter Lucy Mason.

"I want to thank Childline for saving my life. If you hadn’t have called me an ambulance I don’t know what would have happened. I’m out of hospital now and feeling fine."

If you're unable to attend the event this year but would still like to support our Childline service please consider making a donation to help us be here for children.
