A record breaking London Bridge Community Christmas

 

 This year's London Bridge Community Christmas has proved to be our most successful yet, bringing over 20 businesses and their employees together to help local charities. The campaign began in November, with businesses signing up for volunteering slots at the community wrapping day, donating gifts and organising their own volunteer wrapping sessions. As a result of everyone’s efforts 1703 gifts were donated – our biggest collection to date.
 

The community volunteering day at WPF Therapy took place on the 7th December. 70 local employees and residents donned their best pair of antlers and got together to help make the presents look the part before sorting and sending away to local charities. The tenants of The Shard also organised their wrapping bay in the common area over 2 days, collecting a staggering 520 gifts (measuring half the height of The Shard itself). Over at More London, Norton Rose Fulbright held a competition to see which floor could collect the most gifts; the results were fantastic, with 400 gifts donated and wrapped.

 


We had a helping hand from Sam and the team to squeeze The Shard’s gift donations into one minivan!

Thanks to these overwhelming contributions, we were able to donate to 5 additional charities, bringing the total to 13. Those benefitting from London Bridge businesses’ generosity this year are:

Blackfriars Settlement

Team London Bridge would like to thank everyone involved for their time and generosity. We hope that the charities' Christmas dinners will be enhanced by being able to give everyone they work so hard to help, an extra gift this Christmas.
