On a cold, crisp evening on 14 December 2017, EEA and partners, East Greenwich Residents' Association (EGRA), held the first Shine A Light parade in East Greenwich where the company is based. Hundreds of local residents, including families from five local schools, and the Bollywood Brass Band took to the streets in a beautiful parade of lanterns and illuminated rickshaws. The intention was to ‘shine a light’ on socially isolated people, many of them elderly, and celebrate what can be achieved through the community coming together.
Through a successful crowdfunded campaign, raising almost £12,000, EEA was able to support this event and continue to run weekly creativePeople's Parlour sessions on Thursday mornings 10 am - 12 pm, starting again on Thursday 25 January. People over 60 are particularly welcome.
