Mission Christmas Appeal at Balfour Beatty

22 Nov 2018 to 14 Dec 2018

Donate a gift this Christmas in  the Mission Christmas Appeal with Metro Radio 


Quorum tenants, Balfour Beatty (Q14 building)  have been registered as an official drop off point for the Mission Christmas Appeal and will be collecting gift donations for the next month (deadline 14th Dec). If other tenants wish to donate,  Balfour Beatty reception will be happy to receive any gifts the people wish to donate.

Mission Christmas is a huge fundraising drive for both cash and gifts so that children living right here in the North East wake up to gifts on Christmas Day.  Last year the charity helped 55,000 children across the North East and this increases each year.

The charity receives applications from local social workers, hospices etc , requesting gifts and cash for the children they look after so it’s important we get as much support as possible in time for Santa and his Elves to deliver these in time for the big day! Collectively, The Quorum Business Park could make a real difference.

The charity accepts brand new gifts unwrapped so that they can be sorted into age ranges and gender.

Gift ideas include:

  • 0-3 years – Teddies, Musical Toys, Rattles, Books Play Mats

More about The Four Elements on their website:

Example photo from exhibit

“We cannot conceive of matter being formed of nothing, since things require a seed to start from… Therefore, there is not anything which returns to nothing, but all things return dissolved into their elements.”
William Shakespeare

The Ancient Greeks were the first to suggest that all matter is made up of four elements: earth, water, air and fire. This idea, which has also been described in ancient Hindu and Buddhist texts, has gone on to become the cornerstone of science, medicine and philosophy for over two thousand years. It was not until 1789, when Antoine Lavoisier published a list of 33 chemical elements, that the first periodic table dispelled this idea.

However, the images on display in this exhibition present the original Four Elements in all their glory. They successfully convey the life sustaining powers to be found in earth, water, air and fire and the importance of these elements for life on Earth.

Some of the images concentrate on the serenity and calmness that these elements can bring; the stillness of water on a calm day or the gentle breeze in a cloudy sky. Others focus more on the immense strength and destructive force that they can unleash; the violence of waves crashing against the shore or inherent dangers of playing with fire. Either way, our photographers have managed to capture the beauty, the strength and the resilience of the Four Elements.
