Welcome to St Peter's Singers Penthos fund page !

St Peter's Singers is a chamber choir based at Leeds Minster.

On 27 October we are giving first performance of Penthos, a new requiem created by two of our members as a contribution to Leeds' Centenary commemorations of the Armistice that ended the Great War in 1918.

Penthos urges us all to mourn not just those fallen in war, but also our human tendencies to go to war, and so to care for the victims of those wars currently destroying lives in the Middle East.

So it seems fitting that as part of our Penthos project we should raise funds to support four charities working on the ground in Leeds to assist asylum seekers and refugees in our midst.

They are:
  • Leeds Asylum Seekers’ Support Network (LASSN)
  • Leeds Playhouse: Theatre of Sanctuary
  • Mill Hill Conversation Club
  • Positive Action For Refugees and Asylum Seekers (PAFRAS)
There will be a collection at the end of the concert, but those who are unable to attend and would like to donate can do so here. All funds received by St Peter's Singers for this cause will be distributed fully and equally between the four charities.

Thank you for your support.

Leeds Asylum Seekers’ Support Network

LASSN offers a range of support to asylum seekers, who typically experience acute isolation and prolonged uncertainty over their asylum claim.

Their volunteers offer friendship and practical help through befriending, ‘grace hosting’ in their own homes, and employment skills building for people eligible to work in the UK.

Leeds Playhouse: Theatre of Sanctuary

works closely with refugee organisations and volunteers  to offer a range of creative and practical projects.

Weekly activities include a youth group, a Conversation Café, the ‘Asmarina Voices’ women’s singing group, a play project for pre-school children and public speaking skills development.


Mill Hill Conversation Club

at Mill Hill Chapel in Leeds city centre provides a safe place for refugees and asylum seekers. 

Volunteers provide refreshments, encourage everyone to chat in English and also run two more structured English
groups each week.

PAFRAS

works to counter the effects of enforced destitution on vulnerable migrants.

Its work has three main strands: emergency and crisis support, 1:1 specialist casework and integrated mental health support.

Charity No: 507174
