This Christmas, local businesses are coming together to give to Islington in different ways.
Leading local law firm Bolt Burdon has had a strong connection to Islington since 1986, and supports a range of local and national organisations each year by fundraising, giving donations and volunteering. This year, Bolt Burdon supported Islington Giving’s Christmas Celebration, offering our supporters the chance to celebrate another year of local impact, and look ahead to exciting plans for 2018 and further ahead.
Our friends at the Business Design Centre have kindly donated advertising space to show Islington Giving’s message to people who live and work in the borough. You can see the billboard next to the BDC whilst walking along Upper Street. Feel free to take a snap and share using our social channels (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram). The fabulous design was provided by Aubrey Design, a professional brand agency with years of experience working with major national and international clients. With offices inside the BDC, Intellectual Property specialists Briffa have also supported Islington Giving this Christmas.
This year, local family-run estate agent Currell has been extremely supportive of Islington Giving. Not only do they donate to change lives in Islington, Gracie, Currell’s Senior Sales Negotiator, ran the London Marathon in support of Islington Giving, raising over £2,000.
Islington Giving’s newest business friend, Marsh & Parsons, has been serving London for 160 years. Priding itself on its local knowledge, Marsh & Parsons has partnered with Islington Giving for 2018 to invest in the community and make a difference to local residents.
Based on Liverpool Road, massage therapist Perea Clinic is collecting donations for Islington Giving, and also encouraging clients and visitors to donate toys that will be given to children and young people involved with Centre 404. Perea had a fabulous open day on Thursday 14th December, but there is still time to pop in, say hello, and drop off a donation.
We would also like to thank the range of other local businesses who give to Islington in different ways. You can read more about them here.
