Carols for Causes 2020

  On Sunday 20th December, the Fine & Country Foundation hosted their annual carol concert. Hosted on Facebook Live for free, friends, family and loved ones joined the evening’s festivities from all corners of the world, for a truly international event. Thank you to everyone who helped in raising over £3,000 towards our global fight against homelessness and poverty.
