We would like to thank all the individuals who make regular donations and the organisations who support us and the work we do. Some are listed below:
Children in Need
Since 2004, Small Steps has been fortunate enough to receive regular funding from Children in Need and we have taken part in various Children in Need Radio and TV broadcasts over the years.
Small Steps has a very close relationship with the Amrop UK. We are Amrop's nominated charity and all staff have visited Small Steps. Every year they take on a fundraising challenge (including “3 peaks in 24 hours” and “9 lakes in 9 hours”), intrepid adventures with the purpose of raising funds for the Charity.
Altus Investment Management Ltd
We are delighted to be supported by Altus Investment Management Ltd as their nominated charity. Altus was founded by Patrick de Vink, who is on the Small Steps Board and who's daughter used to attend Small Steps.
Since 2008 Small Steps has been the recipient of funds raised at the weekly Thursday night quiz hosted by local pub, The Arab Boy. Occasionally Team Small Steps (aka Little Feat), joins in the fun!
Sidley’s involvement with Small Steps began in 2010 through a connection with a family. They are providing extensive valuable pro-bono legal advice to Small Steps, through the firms 'Emerging Enterprises Pro Bono Program' particularly in relation to our move to the new building.
We have a long standing relationship with MTT through our friend Paul Mott. Activities have included 3 ‘Stepping Out’ Fundraising Balls at the Park Lane Hilton and of course Paul is a member of the incredible ‘Sandblasters’ Team, taking on ultra-marathon adventures around the world to raise funds for Small Steps. MTT are now assisting with the building work for Small Steps new home.
We were delighted to receive a donation for £68,200 from the Global's Make Some Noise 2017 appeal. GMSN is a national charity linked to 8 of the UK’s most famous radio stations. Each radio station encourages listeners and their presenters to help fundraise for their charities in a whole host of different ways from sponsored fancy dress and on-air competitions through to sponsored sky-dives and trekking the Great Wall of China!
Charlotte Grobien, a local resident, first set up Give it Away in 2006, a company building homes for sale in the open market and giving away profits to local and London charities. Charlotte first approached the Small Steps in 2007 and has been very supportive of our charity over the years, making several very substantial donations.
Small Steps is Tanfield Chambers nominated charity. Tanfield has shown support through buying and distributing branded Christmas puddings, hosting a disability awareness workshop, advancing funds to the charity in lieu of Christmas cards and individual chamber members have also initiated individual fundraising ventures.
