London Stock Exchange welcomes City Giving Day

City Giving Day is an annual initiative run by the Lord Mayor's Appeal Charity. Born three years ago it was created as a platform for companies across London to celebrate and showcase their charitable work. Championed by successive Lord Mayor's of the City of London this event has gone from strength to strength with a record 210 companies taking part this year.

From static cycles and treasure hunts to refugee workshops and mentoring, on this day, thousands of employees will be engaged and hundreds of charities will benefit.

Good business can only succeed in health, vibrant societies. We in the City recognise that, so community work has always been integral to what we do. City Giving Day will be an exciting day of celebration and an opportunity to showcase the contribution of our companies to our communities through Time Given, People Supported.

The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress are delighted to attend London Stock Exchanges' 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.
