The Lord Mayor's Appeal Events: July to September

The Lord Mayor’s Appeal calendar of annual events helps to highlight our four thought-leadership initiatives and fundraise for our three partner charities: MQ Mental Health Research, Homewards and National Numeracy.

From The City’s yearly beer festival to business breakfasts discussing social mobility, our events offer companies and individuals in the City and beyond an exciting way to support us in our aim to create A Better City For All.

With so many in the pipeline, we've created a one-stop, round-up of The Lord Mayor’s Appeal Events from July to September 2024:
