TeaThe lyrical title of the day: “Covid kills the elves.” So say Alison Burton and Natalie Duvall. Fortunately, they overcome this setback — Alison and Natalie, that is — to make March Moses and decorate christmas tree A Black Santa and Afro Angels, with colored ornaments.
Both Alison and Natalie are residents of South London with Jamaican heritage. They had known each other as children, then went separate ways, but were reunited eleven years ago when they were both pregnant. After giving birth to daughters in a span of only two weeks, they went to meet Nando as it had a convenient place for the buggy. While having lunch and keeping the world in power he started comparing notes to see what he should do next. And was wondering if they could do something together.
Ellison had moved primarily from HR to recruiting for the pharmaceutical industry; Natalie had trained at the British School of the Performing Arts and was giving drama workshops in schools. He put them all together and came up with “Career Challenge” workshops, introducing young people to the secrets of money management and CVs, but also adding fun and games. Then five years ago they realized that the one thing people were still missing from their lives were elves.
