London, UK – Monday, September 7, 2020 – ICM recently partnered with Sands End Associated Projects in Action (SEAPIA) as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) outreach program. In collaboration with ICM, SEAPIA organised a fun-filled activity catered towards children aged 4-13 years.
With ICM’s generous contribution of craft supplies and other creative products, SEAPIA provided a motivational and positive reinforcing environment for kids to express themselves freely. Remarking on the outreach program, Shoaib Abedi, CEO, and Founder of ICM, states that:
“ICM is extremely privileged to partner with SEAPIA to conduct a recreational program for children, supplying them with safe and encouraging environment to express themselves freely. We take our CSR initiatives very seriously and consider this programme an opportunity to give back to the society whole-heartedly. We look forward to working again with SEAPIA in the future.”
Julie Cavanagh, Manager at Sands End Adventure Playground, further affirms:
“The generous donation from ICM provided arts and crafts for the 6-week summer programme. We were also able to provide art and crafts packages for local children that could not attend the centre this year. Although we had to limit our numbers due to Covid-19, ICM’s generous donation has made a big difference to over 40 children and their families."
SEAPIA is a community-focused organisation providing play-cum-childcare provisions for children aged 4-13 years by engaging them in multiple activities in a stimulating positive environment. Furthermore, SEAPIA acts as a bridge between the elderly and younger generation by creating opportunities to meet, share experiences, and socialise with each other.
