A&L Goodbody held its annual A&L Goodbody Christmas Choir yesterday evening in the surroundings of Dublin’s St Patrick’s Cathedral with all proceeds going to homelessness charity Depaul. All singers, musicians and musical direction came from A&L Goodbody, the 70 strong effort filled the cathedral with the music of Christmas within a stone’s throw of a number of Depaul’s services for the homeless.
The A&L Goodbody Choir donated all proceeds of the concert to Depaul, helping the charity to support the most vulnerable people in society. Colleagues, Depaul donors, friends and family attended the event with funds raised going to Depaul’s 15 Dublin services for people struggling in homelessness, including; emergency accommodation, services for families, services for women leaving the criminal justice system, migrant outreach, women leaving rehab programmes and migrant outreach.
Julian Yarr, A&L Goodbody Managing Partner commented;
“The A&L Goodbody Christmas concert is a brilliant evening. It's one of the highlights of our year. Our choir was inspirational and I would like to thank them and everyone who attended the concert. It's also a chance for us to support Depaul in the fantastic work they do with homeless people. Organisations like Depaul make a real difference to the chronic homeless situation we have in Dublin and we are proud to support them, particularly in the run up to Christmas.”
Speaking at the concert, Depaul CEO Kerry Anthony said;
“I would like to say congratulations to the choir for putting on an incredible evening of music, for A&L Goodbody to make such a contribution to Depaul is greatly appreciated and I want to thank each and every musician and member of the choir. It’s hugely important that the corporate community get behind the organisation, the number of homeless people is continuing to rise and in order for Depaul to continue in its efforts to provide a bed and support to the most vulnerable in society sustainable funding is an imperative.”
