What will you be doing on City Giving Day?
Every year City Giving Day celebrates the value of the City to society and shows how businesses can make a difference, as part of our bid to create a fair society. This year’s City Giving Day on Tuesday 21st September will champion activities - whether corporate social responsibility, philanthropy, or volunteering initiatives.
The Lord Mayor’s Appeal want this year to be the biggest year yet and whether you are planning on taking part at an activity in the City or virtually from home, we have pulled together some of our top events for the day that you and your business could take part in.
