Our special evensong at St Paul's Cathedral in London was a great success. More than 500 people joined us on 15 November for the service that was dedicated to supporting our Make Runaways Safe campaign.
In addition to more than a dozen young people, many of whom are former runaways, our guests also included Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Gloucester, actress Jenny Agutter and hundreds of supporters. Please watch a video from the evening.
Readings during the evensong were delivered by former runaways, as well as our chief executive, Bob Reitemeier. Rt Revd Tim Thornton, Bishop of Truro and head of The Children's Society's board of trustees, delivered the address.
Please watch Tom explain why young people run away and address the dangers they face.
