Our Homes are Christian-inspired residential communities providing opportunities for change in both lifestyle and values. We are spread over several sites, providing accommodation, care and support. We can offer training for residents who want new skills and opportunities and we may even be able to offer employment through our Social Enterprise Projects. We welcome people of all races, sexualities, genders, or faiths.
Lighthouse Residents and Staff feature on Christmas Single release for Crisis
Lighthouse residents & staff joined the choir organised by our partners, the homeless Charity, Crisis, to release the 50th anniversary single of the world famous 'Streets of London.'
Legendary singer-songwriter, Ralph McTell, re-recorded his timeless song, with a choir made up of clients from Crisis – the national charity for homeless people – and guest vocalist Annie Lennox, to raise money for the cause in the run up to Christmas. First penned 50 years ago, the classic single shares its birthday with Crisis, whose 50th anniversary also falls this December.
To mark the occasion, Crisis’ homeless clients and staff from across the country came together to form an 88-strong choir, including Staff and residents from Lighthouse Homes, to sing alongside McTell and guest vocalist Lennox. The choir was conducted by Only Men Aloud’s Tim Rhys-Evans, while the recording also features Fairport Convention’s Richard Thompson on guitar.
The single is being released to raise money for Crisis and help support some of the thousands of people facing homelessness this Christmas, many of whom will have nowhere to turn as the winter months close in.
