City law firm RPC has released a cover of Slade’s seasonal classic, ‘Merry Christmas Everybody’, with the help of Jersey Boys star Jon Boydon (pictured top right).

The track — that has been produced by the corporate outfit’s in-house choir, ‘Harmony’, alongside West End star Boydon — has been released to raise funds for homelessness charity St Mungo’s Broadway.

The accompanying video, which appeared on YouTube yesterday, shows a host of lawyers and other staff at the commercial firm donning Christmas hats, comical reindeer antlers and seasonally-themed ties as they join Boydon in song.

All proceeds go to St Mungo’s basic skills programme — the aim of which is to assist those who have recently come off the streets develop key skills such as numeracy and literacy, allowing them to gain employment and, as result, independence.

Working closely with conductor Esmeralda Conde Ruiz, RPC’s staff recorded the track at St Mungo’s Broadway’s recording studio, based at their hostel in Convent Garden.

RPC’s managing partner, Jonathan Watmough, said:

Music therapy not only resonates with our own people who find that singing once a week significantly helps them cope with the stresses of working in a demanding environment, but that we also help to contribute our efforts and fundraising to support St Mungo’s Broadway to teach their clients confidence through music as part of their basic skills curriculum.

‘Merry Christmas Everybody’ will be available until 6 January, and can be purchased here.

A wonderful cause. And well done for the comedy spelling-error in “literacy”.

Standards between junior and senior lawyers really are slipping.
