Easter Egg Charity Collector
1629. Sienna Galleni
Sienna Galleni, aged 6, from Hillingdon, collected over 1,100 Easter eggs for local charities including domestic abuse refuges and the local children’s hospital in honour of her parents who are both key workers.
Despite facing her own medical issues, Sienna wanted to collect and send out treats to help other children in her local area and give a boost to their wellbeing during lockdown. Another of the local charities that Sienna has helped support is ‘Halo’s Children Foundation’, set up by fellow Point of Light Alia Jones, which helps children who have faced the loss of a family member.
In a personal letter to Holly, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:
“Every day I make someone a Point of Light as a way of saying thank you to them for doing something special. I want to thank you for collecting over 1,000 Easter eggs and putting smiles on the faces of so many children, particularly those who were in hospital over Easter.
“I know you have also delivered treats to heroic key workers, in honour of your mum and dad. It is a fantastic way of saying thank you to those who do so much for us.”
Holly Galleni, Sienna’s Mum, said:
“Sienna feels overwhelmed with happiness to have been recognised for her loving actions that positively affected so many children in her local area. The fact she was able to put a smile on the faces of over 1,000 children made Sienna feel especially proud of herself and what she was able to achieve. Without the help from so many kind people this wouldn’t have been possible.”
