The Story of Christmas
Founded in 1978, The Story of Christmas is the property and construction industries’ annual Christmas charity event. It takes place each December at St George’s Hanover Square, Mayfair, London in the form of a service of nine lessons and carols. Following this there is a champagne reception and charity auction in the ballroom at The Dorchester on Park Lane. The event raises funds – donated chiefly by companies from the property and construction industries – to finance capital projects benefitting either the homeless or disadvantaged children in the London area.
The Event last year
The 37th Presentation of The Story of Christmas took place on Wednesday 17 December 2014 – and raised £425,000.
The video below has been produced by The Story of Christmas’s media partner, the Estates Gazette.
The Story of Christmas would like to thank everyone who supported so generously – through the appeal, the live and silent auctions, the retiring collection at the service and the cash prize draw.
