Leaders from over 60 City businesses joined the Lord Mayor for breakfast at Mansion House to hear why, when and how they should take part in City Giving Day 2016 this September.
Lord Mayor Jeffery Evans sat down with senior execs from bank Credit Agricole and City A.M.'s resident grandee Lawson Muncaster in a bid to win them over for the cause and celebrate the charitable work done all-year round in the Square Mile.
The buffet breakfast at the Lord Mayor's house attracted execs from HSBC, Goldman Sachs, Barclays, Bank of America and UBS, as well as a handful of City Aldermen who came to support Lord Mountevans' appeal to London's financial firms to make a bigger deal out of the charitable initiatives they run every year.
City Giving Day, taking place in late September, is a day when the City will unite to celebrate and promote the best of volunteering and philanthropy in the City. Companies will showcase their community work in the office and online – collectively showing off their potential to change the City for the better.
The Lord Mayor, sat down with some of the City’s leading insurers while bankers, lawyers, property developers and financiers swapped ideas of how their companies can get involved on the big day.
