What an incredible pre-Christmas and Christmas period!

Thank you to each and every person who helped to turn our #dearsecretsanta campaign in to a reality. Because of all of you we managed to distribute over 200 presents to Hackney’s children this Christmas, as well as the care packages which we have been handing out since March, and vouchers for those families that are currently most in need to be able to continue to afford food, basic necessities, and any other extras that all of us should be able to indulge in over Christmas.

In the end we raised an incredible £3,038.73 – a figure which with GiftAid (a UK tax incentive which allows charity to claim an extra 25p for every £1 donated) – becomes an even more impressive £3,699.73.

Not only did we raise such an incredible amount, but we also got a feature in the Islington Gazette which you can read here: https://www.islingtongazette.co.uk/…/haggerston-skyway…

We couldn’t think of a better way to move into the new year! To finish of an awesome and positive update to our campaign, here are some photos showing a few of the presents that we ended up handing out:

From all of the staff here at SkyWay we hope you have an incredible start to 2021. May the new year bring you joy, good memories, and be better than your last!
