30 September 2015
Telereal Trillium is proud to be supporting the Lord Mayor’s Appeal and ‘City Giving Day’ on Wednesday, 30 September 2015 to celebrate the best of corporate responsibility and philanthropy in the City of London.
Championed by the Lord Mayor of London, Alderman Alan Yarrow, over 200 businesses in the City are taking part by celebrating and promoting the fantastic work they have achieved, and continue to achieve, with the charities and communities they support.
‘Time Given, People Supported’ is this year’s theme, with many companies choosing to volunteer or raise awareness and money for the charities that they care about, including the Lord Mayor’s Appeal charities: Scope, Mencap, The Royal Ballet School, City & Guilds of London Art School and Royal Academy or Arts.
Scope, a UK disability charity, is working to help change perceptions and encourage people to think differently about disability. Please help by watching and sharing this one-minute video clip: “End the Awkward - http://youtu.be/mAXMWjCF4cw".
Telereal Trillium has a long history of supporting charities and the local community. Our charity partners include Tomorrow’s People, LandAid, Career Ready, and St Mungo’s Broadway, with whom we support a wide range of programmes aligned with our corporate theme of ‘Helping People into the Workplace’. This includes funding the ‘St Mungo’s Broadway & Telereal Trillium Mentoring Programme’ - helping formerly homeless people move into education, training and employment - as well as providing pro bono advice and volunteers for the past three years.
Susan Cain, Head of Corporate Responsibility at Telereal Trillium said: “At Telereal Trillium, we like to support the causes that are closest to our people’s hearts through the company’s volunteering and charity matching schemes. In the last financial year, an amazing 42% of employees raised funds and donated to 117 different charities, with the company making matching donations. And 56% of staff volunteered in their local communities – a figure we are very proud of.”
The causes supported by Telereal Trillium range from the UK’s largest charities to very small local initiatives.
