London Bridge Community Christmas 2016

Another edition of the London Bridge Community Christmas. Over the past six years Team London Bridge have collected thousands of gift donations from London Bridge employees. The charities we support each year have a big impact on the local community, working with the homeless, elderly, young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and those who struggle with mental health issues. This year, the tradition continues and we’ll be collecting presents throughout November to be wrapped on 7th December ready for the charities to give out at their special annual Christmas lunches.

Charities supported this year are: Bede HouseBeormund Community CentreCoolTan Arts, Ronald McDonald HouseTime and TalentsStones End Day CentreSouth London MissionSouth London Cares
