ELBA and BIG Alliance Toy Appeal
For Christmas 2022, staff at GreySpark’s London office (as we did in 2015) donated Christmas presents to children via the East London Business Alliance (ELBA). This year, however, we also had fun writing accompanying letters to the children from ‘Santa’.
The charity is the leading social regeneration charity in East London and Islington. With 30 years’ experience, it facilitates corporate involvement in community organisations, education and employment across the East London boroughs.
Feedback from parents (via ELBA) included:
“She loved playing with her toy and making a mess! It helped with her sensory processing, Helped with Cost-of-Living Crisis.” Parent of 7-year-old with Tuberous Sclerosis, MLD and Speech and Language Delay
“He liked the toys. It did help with money and freed up finances to get some food over the Christmas.” Parent of 13-year-old with Neurofibromatosis Type 1 and Severe Learning Difficulties
