PROJECT: WeAreOne iPad Charity Raffle

PROJECT: WeAreOne Longley Charity Raffle to with an iPad air. CLICK HERE to buy raffle tickets. 

Talk About Art (TAA) is a wonderful local charity that helps disadvantaged young people. They recently approached the Longley Group to ask for a sponsorship deal to assist in the set up and development costs of a project they are running to create income generating products and activities. A large percentage of The Longley Group’s work is in the education sector and with Managing Director Charlie Longley being a big advocate of supporting children and young people, as well as being a proud father of two himself, he was more than happy to support.

TAA has been in operation since 2015 and believes every child has natural inner creativity and that developing their creative confidence equips children and young people with skills that are invaluable to every aspect of life. They have been running visual arts projects for homeless children, unaccompanied asylum seekers and teenagers with mental health issues in South East London. Last year they produced an online gallery project ‘UR ART 2020’, celebrating young artists in Lockdown. Submissions were published in a book which is now held in libraries in Lewisham, Greenwich and Bromley.

TAA creates opportunities where children and teenagers can be given guided and supported access to creative engagement and all the associated benefits in instances where they are prevented by financial, social or cultural challenges. This work is so important as children are the architects, designers, software developers, engineers and artists of your future. Charlie has kindly donated £750 the cost of the Apple iPad Air for a prize draw and hoping to raise further funds.

Winter Warmer Charity Update

WeAreOne: Project Winter Warmer Appeal – Update

Back in October 2020 during one of our Longley team meetings, we decided to start hosting our own Charity events as we wanted to give back to our community. With so much going on in the world and with so many people at a disadvantage. We started working on ideas about how we could play our part in making a small difference in the lives of people in need one step at a time.

Our first WeAreOne: Project was launched in November 2020 in partnership with John Bygraves. We decided on a Winter Warmer Appeal. The response from our close networks was amazing. Special thanks, goes out to Victoria Wheeler for the contribution of brand new hats and gloves, to the anonymous lady for the wash bags full with essential toiletries and Charlie Longley for his £500 cash gift which was spent on x50 new sleeping bags. John Bygraves also played a great role in helping pull this together and securing lots of amazing winter warmers that went direct to Nightwatch homeless Charity Croydon helping the homeless stay warm this winter and the long last food which went to the Bromley Borough Foodbank. Thank you to everyone that contributed to this winter appeal you have all helped to make a difference within our community.

We are already planning our next WeAreOne: Project and full details will be announced very soon across our socials and news section here on our Longley website.
