The London Residential team couldn’t resist getting involved with World Book Day on 2nd March 2017.
The event, which celebrated its 20th year, saw children across North West London dress up as their favourite book characters, and immerse themselves in the world of authors and illustrators.
Our Managing Director, Steven Govier and Marketing Manager, Jules Ferrigno, took time out of their busy schedules to visit the Eleanor Palmer Primary School in Lupton Street, Kentish Town, to join in their World Book Day celebrations.
“One of the highlights of our visit was the hugely entertaining whole-school assembly, where we learnt that the origins of the book event stem from Spain. We also stayed to listen to the children read and presented the school with a cheque for £250, which will go towards buying new books and equipment to foster a love of literacy among the students.”
March’s donation and school visit isn’t the first time that North West London estate agents London Residential have supported the Eleanor Palmer primary school. “In 2016, we sponsored the school’s Summer Festival and Winter Fair by organizing promotional boards that went up in front gardens across Camden. We work with Eleanor Palmer as its a local school in the community where we already have a number of existing relationships. World Book Day was the perfect opportunity for us to support young readers and pay this brilliant school a visit."
