Twitter is great.
It's a fantastic way of "speaking" to people and getting the low down on the local community. It's like the garden fence of the 1950s - pop your head over the fence anytime and have a chat with your neighbours.
So it's with great delight that I can shout out about the launch of the #BeckBromFLSanta appeal.
Now those of you who already follow #BeckBromFl on Twitter will very much be aware of the buzz the campaign has caused on Twitter this week. For those of you who don't follow #BeckBromFl.... why not?! It really is a fantastic way of keeping up with the local community and businesses in the Beckenham and Bromley area.
So what is this #BeckBromFLSanta campaign then?
Quite simply, it's all about giving something back to our local area this yuletide season. Think about it....
What if..... in your street there was a child facing the prospect of being in the care of social services this Christmas?
What if..... you knew a child in your neighbourhood was preparing to spend Christmas day in a hospital bed?
What if..... our community could make a difference this year and put a smile on the faces of children in Bromley who really needed it?
You can make that happen by joining us and sparing £5 that will buy a gift for a child.
We believe that lots of little random acts of kindness can make a big difference.The #BeckBromFLsanta appeal wants to raise as many smiles as possible. At present #BeckBromFL are in contact with several local children’s charities, but they would also welcome any other potential benefactor organisations, so do contact them if you have any ideas.
All you currently need to do is register your intention to get involved on the 'Count me in' page on our website - click here to go to that page. All that's needed at this stage is your twitter name and email to keep you up to date with information as it arises.
Let's harness this wonderful community spirit this Christmas and make a difference to local children who really need it.
