Dear Colleagues, Family and Friends.
32 eager to be dressed as Santa colleagues from Euromonitor International are taking part in Santa in the City 2019 run on Thursday 5th December. We are fundraising for East London Business Alliance (ELBA) Christmas toy appeal.
What is the ELBA Toy Appeal?
The ELBA Toy Appeal is an annual event where companies across the city and Islington ask employees to donate a gift to a child in east London and Islington. It’s not right that in some parts of east London, over 50% of children live in poverty. Many of these children would not receive a present at Christmas.
The toys are distributed to ELBA’s community partners in east London and Islington. All these organisations work with families and children who are experiencing hardship for different reasons. This includes families that are fleeing domestic violence, living in emergency temporary accommodation, refugees, and children with disabilities and additional needs.
