Women in the City and guests at the Future Leaders Celebration Breakfast together donated £686 for the inaugural City’s Giving Day (11 July) instigated by The Rt Hon, The Lord Mayor, Alderman Fiona Woolf CBE – the City’s 686th Lord Mayor. The donation will go towards the Lord Mayor’s Appeal 2014 which aims to raise over £2 million for 4 charities: Raleigh International, Beating Bowel Cancer, Princess Alice Hospice and Working Chance.
A huge thank you to moloh, Glasseswebb, Libby London, La Patisserie des Reves and Charles Worthington for donating amazing prizes.
We’ve put a further £169 towards a second fundraising event being held on 19 September when 100 people, including Women in the City’s Programme Manager, Marianne Bosak, will Abseil Lloyds Building (she’s abseiled before so she’ll not chicken out!).
We need to raise £500 to enter the Abseiling Challenge. City caterers The Cook & The Butler has agreed to match the £500 we raise with a further £500 so please give generously and help us on our way.
