The Lord Mayor reflects on 2020
2020 has been a challenging year for all of us and these difficult times have meant that the work of The Lord Mayor’s Appeal and its charity partners has been more important than ever. Through its work, the Appeal has continued to bring the City together, providing excellent learning, development and engagement opportunities for employees through its initiatives Power of Inclusion, This is Me, She Can Be and City Giving Day.
I am delighted that the Appeal has adapted to the changing circumstances and continued to keep in contact with its supporters and beneficiaries effectively. We have taken our initiatives online, creating a City that is Inclusive, Healthy, Skilled and Fair. The following pages will show you the huge impact that we have achieved in 2020 despite the challenges, as well as the groundbreaking projects we are supporting through our charity partners.
Along with my colleagues Alderman Vincent Keaveny, Alderman Sir Peter Estlin and Alderman Sir Charles Bowman, we are extremely grateful for all the support we have received from corporate partners, livery companies and individuals. They have enabled us to deliver financial help to our exceptional charities who are tackling society’s most pressing needs through innovative projects, resources and delivery.
There is much more work to do but we continue to be ambitious, collaborating with you, our supporters, to make a transformational impact and create A Better City for All for All.
Rt Hon The Lord Mayor of the City of London, Alderman William Russell
