Avanta Managed Offices Ltd, the leading provider of flexible work space and support for growing businesses, is supporting The Story of Christmas Appeal by providing them with free office space and support services in its 20 Hanover Square business centre.
The Story of Christmas is the property industry's Christmas event, raising around £250,000 each year to fund capital projects benefitting disadvantaged young people and the homeless in London. Fundraising culminates in a spectacular carol service at the start of the Christmas season in the form of a service of nine lessons and carols at St George's in Hanover Square.
The Event involves The Story of Christmas's President, Dame Judi Dench, and Deputy President, Aled Jones, as well as a whole host of distinguished readers. Guest narrators have previously included Daniel Craig, Benedict Cumberbatch and Joanna Lumley, among many others.
"Avanta has long been a supporter of children's charities and the great work that they do for children with medical and social problems. The Story of Christmas appeal is a cause with strong ties to the property industry and we are delighted to lend our support to such a worthy cause," comments Alan Pepper, Chief Executive Avanta.
Dame Judi Dench, President of The Story of Christmas has expressed enthusiastic support for the initiative saying: "We are so very fortunate to have the help of Avanta, whose support is helping us to ensure that our Appeal can continue to do such very great things in what we all know is a challenging time for fundraising."
