The Worshipful Company of Constructors held their annual Christmas Carol Service at our Guild Church of St Lawrence Jewry last evening. It was held in conjunction with the Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects and the Guild of Entrepreneurs and resulted in a full congregation, who sang several Christmas Carols lustily and listened to some magnificent carols and other Christmas music splendidly sung and played by Catherine Ennis and the choir of St Lawrence Jewry. The address was given by Revd Canon David Parrott, the Guild Vicar of St Lawrence Jewry.
A collection was taken during the service and, as usual, our share of the collection was given to CRASH, the construction industry charity that supports hospices, the homeless and other disadvantaged people.
After the Service, Lucie Gillard, the CRASH Fundraising Executive wrote to the Gallant Clerk – “Thank you for inviting CRASH to the annual carol service for The Worshipful Company of Constructors. Becky and I enjoyed the evening and we are delighted you chose to support us again this year. I am pleased to confirm that you raised £415.20 through the charity collection.
Your support will enable CRASH to continue our work assisting homelessness charities and hospices and their life changing building projects. Thank you. I hope you have a wonderful festive season and a happy 2020!”

If any members of the Company who were not able to be at yesterday evening’s carol service would also like to contribute to CRASH they can do so here.
After the Carol Service we adjourned to the splendid surroundings of the Guildhall Club, where we enjoyed a sit-down buffet with wine.
