Tonight Benedict attended the eighth The Fayre of St James, a charity event promoted annually by the Quintessentially Foundation in partnership with The Crown Estate in benefit of a particular charity. This year, the one in question is The Felix Project, which works against hunger and food waste, collecting surplus food from trusted suppliers and delivering it for free to other charities and schools so that they can offer healthy meals to the most vulnerable. They provide enough food for nearly 3 million meals per year for their 200 partners.
Hosted at St James’s Church in London, the event is a massive celebration of Christmas, featuring live performances, carol-singing and festive readings. Here are some pictures and videos of the evening:

For the sixth year in a row, Benedict has donated shoes to the Small Steps Project’s annual Celebrity Shoe Auction! This time, it’s a pair of white trainers from the vegan line made by Vivobarefoot, a brand of minimalistic footwear that prioritizes comfort and sustainability.
All the money raised will benefit the charity, which works to deliver shoes and emergency aid to children and families who live on landfill sites around the world.
According to founder and CEO Amy Hanson, Benedict’s shoes are usually the top performers and the pair he donated last year were sold for about £6,000:
The auction kicked off today and will end on Sunday, 24 November. International bids are accepted, although posting is restricted to some countries. For more information, please visit the official auction page on eBay.
