18 December My DofE volunteering: Campaigning for the youth in Hackney
City Stories: Robinson Hambro
Why are you supporting City Giving Day?
We’ve supported City Giving Day from its start as a simple cake sale in Guildhall Yard during former Lord Mayor Fiona Woolf’s year. It has developed to showcase the four pillars of The Lord Mayor’s Appeal – an inclusive, healthy, skilled and fair City.
Which charities or communities do you support?
Mental health is one of the biggest issues facing the City and society. Supporting the Samaritans, which through The Lord Mayor’s Appeal has engaged with corporates as a way to maximise its reach and impact, which is crucial.
How will you celebrate City Giving Day?
Engaging in the many activities available in the City, from the Treasure Hunt to the Long Long Lunch, as well as visiting the many companies raising funds for their own or The Lord Mayor’s Appeal. One day we’ll take up the Tour de City bike challenge but having seen what hard work it is, perhaps not this year!
Which charity are you supporting, why are you supporting it?
We are supporting The Lord Mayor’s Appeal three charities – the Samaritans, Place2Be, Onside Youth Zones.
“CGD is hugely inspiring as it showcases the City at its best. You see a human, engaged City, which uses its organisational and technical skills – and its competitiveness! – to build a better world.”
