The annual GroceryAid Carol Concert has raised £60,000 for industry colleagues in need.
The popular event was held at St Luke’s Church, Chelsea on December 12. It featured a professional choir and readings from a number of grocery industry bigwigs, including Weetabix boss Sally Abbott.
She commented: “As ever, the GroceryAid Carol Concert was a beautiful event, such a peaceful, warm-spirited and connected evening for an industry that can be so demanding. It’s great to know that our efforts are helping others in need, particularly at this special time of the year.”
Following the concert, a champagne and canapé reception was held at the nearby Chelsea Gardener.
The sum raised is enough to fund 1,200 counselling sessions for those who have been the victim of a crime or a traumatic event.
