An incredible £18,000 raised through our winter appeal! 🎉

A HUGE thank you to everyone who supported, fundraised and donated to our Islington Winter Appeal! Thanks to the continued generosity of local people like you, we raised over £18,000 in our winter appeal. 100% of this will go towards supporting vital projects in Islington that make connections, spark joy and change lives. Coming together as a community means that we make a difference to hundreds of local people over the coming months. Thank you.

Here are some of the incredible local groups we’ve supported thanks to you:

“Make do Play is amazing. There’s nothing really like it. My son has been to the sessions a lot and it’s really amazing – he absolutely loves it. It’s such an important and brilliant part of the community.” – Parent, Make Do Play

Make-Do Play, Steve Bainbridge, 2023

“New Art Studio is a very important place. Art is a community and when any artist can give and learn from others, it creates a stronger community.” – Mehmet, New Art Studio

New Art Studio, Emma Marshall, 2023

“If Claremont wasn’t here, it would be awful. The classes and activities are an opportunity to mix with new people. I’ve made many new friends over the years – sometimes we go out for dinners outside of classes.” – Pippa Claremont

Thank you to Open Creates, Angel Central, Angel Islington, Vital Energi, ARK Co-working, Such Sweet Thunder, Islington Council, Business Design Centre, and everyone who contributed to this appeal. We are so grateful for your support.

I love being a part of Islington Giving! The money my family gives connects us to organisations in our neighbourhood doing important work that we would find hard to discover by ourselves. The Islington Giving team are expert grant-makers…and because of that we know our money is being put towards delivering amazing projects impacting issues we care about. They’ve made it incredibly easy to participate in high-integrity, innovative philanthropy that is making a difference, creating an Islington community that is better for everyone in it. What’s not to love?” Sarah, Islington Giving donor

We look forward to sharing more local impact with you soon!
