AoS Christmas carols

22nd December 2014
Apostleship of the Sea (AoS) surprised commuters with carol singing in London’s Pimlico underground station reminding them of the lives of seafarers during the festive season. 
                  Led by Joanna Bogle, charity staff, trustees and volunteers and those involved in the shipping industry took over the ticket hall at Pimlico tube station in the run up to Christmas. 
                  Accompanied by an impromptu brass band, they sang a variety of traditional Christmas carols to both raise funds for AoS, but also call to mind the lives of seafarers during the festive season. 
                  Earlier in the day, the children of Westminster Cathedral Catholic Primary school also sang in the station to the great delight of tube travellers. Commuters responded with great generosity with nearly £900 raised to support AoS' work. 
                 Over the Christmas season the port chaplains and volunteers of AoS will be doubling their efforts to support seafarers who face Christmas thousands of miles away from families and loved ones, particularly helping them to get to a Christmas Mass.
