The choir from the Islington Centre for Refugees and Migrants at Amnesty International

We joined the Islington Centre for Refugees and Migrants, and their patron, Juliet Stevenson for an evening of seasonal celebration! Accompanying the Choir from the Centre led by Romain Malan This evening was a wonderfully festive occasion to celebrate both the creativity of our clients and the work of the Centre. All proceeds raised towards the crucial work of the Islington Centre to support some of the most vulnerable members of our community. This concert was kindly hosted by Amnesty International UK.
