OUR Christmas charity appeal has raised a staggering £250,000 in just three weeks – all thanks to our generous readers.

Please find the time to make your contribution, and through our match funding agreement, all donations from UK individuals will be matched by the Government pound for pound.

You can also try your hand at City A.M.’s online auction at www.cityam.com/auction. Bid for a decadent night of fine dining and whiskies at Boisdale restaurant at Canary Wharf – or golf with Sam Torrance, former European Ryder Cup team captain.
