Those of you who were at the Banquet in March will recall that during his speech The Master John DalIimore announced that he would be joining the Lord Mayor and the CEO of Lloyds in abseiling from the top of the Lloyds’ Building on 19th September. The purpose of this mad cap idea is to raise money for the Lord Mayor’s charities, which this year are:
· The Princes Alice Hospice in Esher
· Beating Bowel Cancer
· Raleigh International – this provides funds for young people to be involved in sustainable development projects in developing countries.
· Working Chance – the charity transforms the lives of women ex-offenders by finding them jobs with quality employers.
Full details of the charities may be found at www.thelordmayorsappeal.org
In order to take part in the abseil he has to raise at least £500 and of course we hope he will to raise a great deal more.
If you feel able to sponsor him you may do so on-line at www.doitforcharity.com/jdallimore; alternatively, you may send a cheque to the Clerk’s Office. Cheques should be made out to ‘The Lord Mayor’s Appeal 2014’.
There will be 100 people taking part from 9am to 4.30pm and we are expecting to find out the time of his abseil in the next few days. As soon as we hear we will let you know so that those wishing to see a very frightened Master may come along.
