Last night, BFCS singers led the singing at the Crisis UK 50th anniversary Carol Service in St Martin in the Bull Ring.
We heard stories of despair and hope from people who had been helped by the charity, and saw a video of their trip to London to record a new fund raising version of ‘Streets of London’ with Ralph McTell and Annie Lennox.
50 years ago, when ‘Streets of London’ was in the charts, ‘Crisis’ was set up to raise awareness of the problem of homelessness. The aim was to make it a thing of the past. They could not have foreseen that in 2017 the problem would be greater than ever.
