31 May City Giving Day participants share volunteer stories for National Volunteers' Week
City Stories: The Guild of Freemen
Why are you supporting City Giving Day?
Through our Guild Charity we have been giving in the City for more than a century. Today we have almost 2000 members, and by joining forces for CGD we can help to make even more of a difference, as well as thanking everyone for their continuing generosity.
Which charities or communities do you support?
We support The Lord Mayor’s Appeal charities working in the City and neighbouring communities. As the association for all Freemen of the City of London, one focus is on helping young people from all backgrounds to realise their potential through schools with links to the City.
How will you celebrate City Giving Day?
We will be featuring CGD and inviting donations via our website at www.guild-freemen-london.co.uk, where people can also find information on applying for the Freedom of the City. We’ll be fielding Guild teams for the Treasure Hunt and Quiz Night organised by The Lord Mayor’s Appeal.
Which charity are you supporting, why are you supporting it?
We are proud to support The Lord Mayor’s Appeal, which is creating a better city for all those in the Square Mile and neighbouring communities.
"We look forward to a wonderful day, celebrating all the giving in our great City."
Dorothy Newlands of Lauriston, Director, Guild of Freemen of the City of London
