Why St Martin-in-the-Fields?
St Martin-in-the-Fields raises several million pounds each year to help homeless people, through their Christmas Appeal, through the Connection at St-Martin’s, and several other charitable works. The Big Issue was launched in the crypt of St Martin-in-the-Fields, Peter Benenson conceived Amnesty International there, Shelter was launched in its basement, it is opposite the National Gallery, and the National Portrait Gallery. It is the parish church of 10 Downing Street, and Buckingham Palace, and the Admiralty. And, while being in one of the richest parts of London, and the richest parts of the world, the immediate streets are ‘home’ to many people without a home.
