10 October World Mental Health Day
City Stories: Banking Standards Board
Why are you supporting City Giving Day?
The BSB has supported CGD since we launched in 2015. It’s a great opportunity to join firms across the City to fundraise, celebrate the charitable work done by staff throughout the year and have fun. This year we are raising money for Auditory Verbal UK and the Lord Mayor’s Appeal.
Which charities or communities do you support?
AVUK does amazing work to raise expectations and outcomes for deaf children. Founded in 2003, AVUK has grown to be the leading provider of Auditory Verbal therapy in the UK. Approximately 80% of children who graduate from their programme achieve language appropriate for their age and most attend mainstream school.
How will you celebrate City Giving Day?
The BSB has a full day of activities planned, including: ‘Going Red’ again; selling a range of home-baked goodies to colleagues in the office; learning more about the City while also stretching our legs on the GCD City Walk; and finally, holding a charity quiz in the evening.
Which charity are you supporting, why are you supporting it?
AVUK was chosen by the BSB team as our Charity of the Year for their amazing work to raise expectations and outcomes for deaf children
“We’re so grateful to everyone at the BSB for supporting our work at Auditory Verbal UK to create a sound future for deaf children.”
Anita Grover, CEO AVUK
