Carol concert raises money for local charities


A carol concert with King's Voices in the Chapel has raised more than £17,000 for four local charities that support the homeless. The money raised will be divided between Jimmy’sWintercomfort, Emmaus and Cambridge Cyrenians. King's Voices is the mixed voice choir at King's, formed in 1997 and now in its 25th year.

The College's festive jumper day raised a further £150 in aid of Jimmy’s, a local charity providing support and housing to people who are rough sleeping.
