Covid-19 update & future plans

Greenwich Toy & Leisure Library Association would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our supporters over what has been an extremely difficult period for the charity. Despite the tremendous efforts of trustees, staff, volunteers and stakeholders we sadly left our premises at Abbey Grove at the end of February 2020. A few days prior to this we held our very well attended AGM, it was agreed enthusiastically that the charity would continue with one of our previous employees (working on a voluntary basis) and another very willing volunteer to re-structure the charity to set up our much loved and needed state of the art sensory equipment into a new setting.

GTLLA has identified a couple of premises within the Royal Borough of Greenwich which would be ideal for the sensory room. Unfortunately one of the buildings requires some extensive work to be completed before the building could be rented out by RBG. Owing to the current Covid-19 pandemic repairs are behind schedule and GTLLA are awaiting an update as to when the building may become available.

While GTLLA are waiting to hear from RBG in relation to the property it has been agreed that our current focus needs to be on fundraising to ensure the sustainability of the charity. With this in mind it has been agreed that a crowdfunding page would assist with raising funds for the re-installation of the sensory room which will cost approximately £4500. We appreciate times are extremely difficult at the moment but would welcome any donations, no matter how small.
