Alderman Peter Hewitt and I visited businesses Pool Re and Jardine Lloyd Thompson in the ward who were both taking part in City Giving Day. (Photograph above from our visit to JLT).
It was wonderful to see all the activity on the day, and also to hear that the charities being supported had an overwhelming response from employees wanting to do more with them.

The same evening I attended the Dragon Awards Ceremony at Mansion House for Corporate Community Involvement, where Pool Re were also Highly Commended in the Best New Community Programme category for their work with the charity Age UK. Many congratulations to Pool Re for this fantastic recognition of their good work.
It has been really good to see this engagement from the ward with some wonderful charities. Thank you to all those that have helped and contributed to these important projects.
