London Stock Exchange welcomes the Lord Mayor's Appeal

The Lord Mayor's year of office provides the Lord Mayor's Appeal with an opportunity to celebrate the achievements and contribution of the City beyond the world of business. The ability of those who live and work here to involve themselves in important causes through giving time and supporting people is inspirational; for the causes to which the Lord Mayor's Appeal contributes, it is transformational.

The LSO is honoured to be one of the beneficiaries of this year's Lord Mayor's Appeal, alongside St Paul's Cathedral Music Outreach and Music in Hospitals.

Funds raised through galas, challenge events and other initiatives will support LSO Discovery, the ground-breaking music education and community programme that inspires and develops the skills and talents of young people to help them succeed in 21st century Britain.

On 5th October the Lady Mayoress will host a number of the Appeal's key supporters for this special market opening event, which will include a private performance by Gareth Davies, LSO Chair and Principal Flute.
