London Stock Exchange welcome City Giving Day
City Giving Day is an annual initiative run by the Lord Mayor's Appeal Charity. Launched in 2015 it was created as a platform for companies across London to celebrate and showcase their charitable work. Championed by successive Lord Mayors of the City of London this event has gone from strength to strength with a record 220 companies taking part this year.
From static cycle challenges and treasure hunts to charity fairs and mentoring, on this day, thousands of employees will be engaged and hundreds of charities will benefit.
Dr Andrew Parmley, The Rt. Hon the Lord Mayor of the City of London.
"The City has so much great community work going on but often we don’t shout loudly enough about all we do. Let’s use City Giving Day to change that and to take collective pride in the work we are doing to really benefit society."
The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress are delighted to attend the London Stock Exchange Market Open Ceremony to kick start celebrations with some of the Appeal's lucky supporters picked out of the Lord Mayor's hat. Joined also by the Sheriffs and Aldermen, they will continue on for the rest of the day, on foot, to visit some of the businesses taking part to share in their celebrations.
