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.
Here at Oracle Creative we are proud to support this charity for the 38th year in succession and look forward to many more years.
This year’s event took place on Wednesday 16 December and raised a terrific £365,000! It was a fantastic event with readings from Robert Bathurst, Mary Berry CBE, Freddie Fox, Ian Hislop, Sir Derek Jacobi CBE, Alex Jennings, Aled Jones MBE, The Rt Hon Sir John Major KG CH, Hattie Morahan, Sophie Raworth and Imogen Stubbs and featuring the Band and Fanfare Trumpeters of the Irish Guards, the Choristers and Layclerks of the Choir of St George’s Chapel Windsor Castle.
