A new record for the Christmas Appeal

News St Martin – Talking Points

Tuesday 15 January 2013

The total amount of money raised so far by the BBC Radio 4 St Martin-in-the-Fields Christmas Appeal stands at £1,835,894 – beating the previous record set only last year. 

“Thanks to our amazing donors, we’ve had yet another record breaking year”, said St Martin-in-the-Fields Charities Manager Craig Norman.

“Their support will enable us to help build hope in the lives of thousands of homeless and vulnerable people who will turn to us for help this year. We wish our work wasn’t necessary, but it is and the demand for our services is increasing, so we are incredibly grateful to everyone who trusts us to use their money to help so many people.”

The money raised is divided between The Connection at St Martin-in-the-Fields and the Vicar’s Relief Fund.

The totals for previous years are:

2011: £1,823,301
2010: £1,513,003
2009: £892,266
2008: £704,156

There is still plenty of time to support this year’s Appeal: make an online donation now, or find out more about the Appeal.
