Thank you to everyone who attended our City Giving Day Thank You reception on Tuesday evening and, of course, to our generous hosts at the Bank of China.
Our Thank You reception was a fabulous end to a fabulous year and we were thrilled that so many of you were able to join us.
Following inspiring speeches from Mr Wenjian Fang, General Manager Bank of China London Branch and The Rt Hon The Lord Mayor Alderman Peter Estlin, The Lord Mayor’s Appeal were delighted to premier the City Giving Day 2019 highlights video.
