Sue Ryder 'Lights of Love' remembrance events

 Sue Ryder Care is organising a series of 'Lights of Love' remembrance services around the country throughout Advent. The London servide will be led by Pam Rhodes from BBC Songs of Praise, at the Church of SS Anselm and Cecilia in Holborn on Wednesday, 17 December at 7.30pm.

A Polish choir will sing traditional carols during the event. Baroness Ryder, CMG OBE, was a legend in her time.
