There was hardly a space left at the annual British-Slovene Society’s annual Carol Service in the beautiful Wren church of St. Andrew by the Wardrobe in London on 11th December.

For the first time this year, the event was organised by the Society’s new Trustee, Nadia Špendal. Her two children read Lessons, sang with the choir and took donations afterwards for the Barka charity, which looks after people with special needs in Slovenia. This year, participants donated £319.

Nadia’s parents flew in the same day with a large consignment of fresh potica from Slovenia for the gathering after the service. All gone! As on previous occasions, the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in the UK kindly donated wine.

We wish you a Happy Christmas, and all the best for the New Year!
