Musical guest Matt Martin got the show rolling with several songs by The King. The Elvis impersonator's day job is in Lucan as an Anglican minister but for Sounds of the Season, he put on his best white suit.

The London Food Bank's Glen Pearson said the need in 2017 is significant with 9,000 Londoners or 3,500 families each month using the services. 

 "Look at your neighbour. They could be the person using the food bank. It's a diverse group."
