Las Iguanas chooses Brainwave for its community Christmas Present Project

The South East team were delighted to hear that the toy store The Entertainer, in partnership with Las Iguanas, had chosen Brainwave to be part of its annual Community Christmas Present Project.  For every Christmas party of ten people booking with the restaurant, £5 went to buying toys for Brainwave.  We were pleased to hear that the initiative had raised £600 which was spilt between gifts for Brainwave families and the Essex Centre.
On 22nd December we were delighted to welcome local families to our Brainwave Christmas party with food and drink donated by the Asda Foundation.  Staff from Las Iguanas and Brainwave were then able to present the gifts to the children.  Lauren Scott, community fundraiser at Brainwave commented ‘The children, parents and staff had such a wonderful time in their Christmas jumpers – it was a lovely afternoon.  Thank you to Asda, Las Iguanas and The Entertainer for making our Christmas Party so special!’ 
The rest of the donation will go towards ensuring that both our therapy rooms are equipped with matching toys, therefore helping Brainwave to reach our aim of seeing two children at the centre every day.
