The Head of Commercial Banking at The Access Bank UK, Johnson Ememandu, joined other participants at the City Giving Day 2019 Countdown Breakfast, on Tuesday 3rd September 2019 held at The Mansion House. Everyone came together to hear from the Lord Mayor’s appeal team to cover their plans for City Giving Day.
The Access Bank UK Limited was proud to support the Lord Mayor’s Appeal through the City Giving Day initiative which forms part of The Access Bank UK’s Corporate Social Responsibility activities which is an area of key importance for the Bank.
The Lord Mayor’s Appeal aims to support three charity partners; Place2Be, OnSide Youth Zones and Samaritans. With The Lord Mayor’s Appeal it will enable Place2Be to deliver a transformational mental health programme in 180 schools in London. It will enable OnSide Youth Zones to build 5 new state of the art Youth Zones in areas of high deprivation in London and will carry on enabling Samaritans to develop a revolutionary online wellbeing programme for employees in London and beyond.
City Giving Day provides small businesses, large corporations and charities with a chance to engage with their employees, recruit volunteers, to have fun, raise money and showcase their charity partners/ charitable giving. In a few weeks, the work and success of hundreds of charities and communities that the City supports will be celebrated on City Giving Day 2019.
The Lord Mayor’s Appeal aims to have a transformational impact on people’s lives by bringing together businesses, neighbouring communities, employees and charities to find solutions to some of London’s most pressing societal issues.
