Thank you to everyone who attended our City Giving Day Thank You event on Monday 5th December and our generous hosts EY.
After kicking of the evening with an inspiring speech from The Rt Hon The Lord Mayor Alderman Dr Andrew Parmley, we also heard from Caroline Artis, Senior Partner at EY and Patrick Dunne of the EY Foundation. The Lord Mayors Appeal premiered the Thank You video for the first time – can you spot yourself in the video? Check it out now!
