Balham Christmas Lights Switch-on 2022

Balham Christmas Lights Switch-on 2022

Samuel Estates had an absolute blast during the annual Balham Festive Lights Switch-on celebration, where our team managed to raise £586 for Sarcoma UK. 

We work with the local council (Wandsworth) annually to put on this fantastic event for the local community in Balham.

This event is always a much-anticipated date in the Samuel Estates calendar. As main event sponsors, we also use the opportunity to raise funds for our chosen charity, Sarcoma UK, by taking donations in exchange for baked goods and mulled wine, which our team lovingly brewed and baked for the event.
Thank you to all who donated; every single penny made a huge impact. You can read all about the story behind why we choose to support Sarcoma UK here.

Genevieve Kitchen from Sarcoma UK said, “We are so grateful to both Samuel Estates and Riverside Radio for helping us to raise awareness of cancer and the work we do. Truly, without your team’s generosity and hard work, we couldn’t put money into research, support people going through a diagnosis and educate GPs/Nurses on the signs and symptoms. Because of yesterday, that brings Samuel Estates’ generosity to over £6,000 (this year) which is a fantastic amount! We are incredibly grateful for the support, opportunities and events that Samuel Estates provide.”

We’d also like to shout out to fellow organisers Riverside Radio and Wandsworth Council for making the switch-on a huge success and to Jeremy Ambache, the Mayor of Wandsworth Council, for leading the countdown.
A huge well done to all the local groups who sang, danced and entertained the jolly crowd on Sunday.
