A stammering centre in Clerkenwell will hold a carol service to raise money for its charitable work.

The fundraising event will take place next Tuesday (December 6) at the Michael Palin Centre for Stammering in Pine Street.

The evening’s programme will start at 6.30pm and run until 8pm, when carols will be sung by children who stammer and their families outside the centre in support of its charitable work.

The centre first opened in 1993 and was named after Monty Python star and Gospel Oak resident Michael Palin following his role in the film A Fish Called Wanda, in which he plays a character who stammers.

The centre has since supported thousands of children and adults who stammer across the country through individually tailored therapy sessions.

Michael Palin said: “It’s undoubtedly one of the best causes I know.”
