    Age Concern and Help the Aged—two of Britian’s major organzation’s for the elderly—are inviting Londoners to a star-studded Christmas ‘A Star For Christmas’ concert. Tickets have now gone on sale for the festive celebration, which includes poems, readings and music from celebrities such as Sir Roger Moore, Lionel Blair and June Whitfield.

    Taking place at 6.30pm at St Paul’s Church, Knightsbridge, on Monday 7th December, ‘A Star For Christmas’ features a host of star performances and music from the Sylvia Young Theatre School, as well as the opportunity for guests to mingle with celebrities afterwards at a wine and mince pie reception.

    ‘A Star for Christmas’ is supported by the Age Concern and Help the Aged ‘Stage for Age’ committee; the Charity’s celebrity fundraising arm, and award-winning actress Sylvia Syms, who starred in The Queen alongside Dame Helen Mirren, is the Concert Director.

    Sir Roger Moore commented: “I am delighted to be involved with the Age Concern and Help the Aged ‘A Star for Christmas’ concert. I always look forward to spending time in London and the beautiful setting of St Paul’s Church in Knightsbridge will certainly make the evening one to remember.

    “Far too often older people are forgotten about in our society, especially over the festive season. It is vital that we remember those older people who are suffering from isolation and loneliness at this time of year—particularly when we’re all rushing about and looking forward to spending time with friends and loved ones.

    “I can’t wait for the Age Concern and Help the Aged ‘A Star for Christmas’ concert, and it’s wonderful that the money raised will give older people the opportunity to meet with friends and get involved in social activities, helping them make the most of the festive season.”

    Tickets are on sale now and are priced at £18.00 each, with concessions available for senior citizens and children priced at £5.00. Contact Sarah Greene in the Age Concern and Help the Aged Events Team for tickets or further details on 020 7239 1964 or email [email protected].
