Auditory verbal

Tyger Drew-Honey with the Chief Executive of Auditory Verbal
St James hosted a unique event tonight for a unique charity that has recently moved to Bermondsey.

Auditory Verbal works with deaf children and it has the aim of providing them with the same opportunities in life as their hearing peers.

Tonight's Carol Evening included children, all with permanent hearing loss and helped by the charity's work,  singing, reading, and playing musical instruments.

As well as the talented young people, we heard from a local story teller, the Coro London choir, the charity's patron, the world's only deaf mezzo-soprano, Janine Roebuck, and TV's Tyger Drew-Honey.

It was all interspersed by congregational carols (with St James's Nick on the organ), followed by wonderful refreshments.

It was a unique and moving evening.
