MAYOR’S FUND BLOG NO.2
Back to school for young Londoners and a brilliant week at the Mayor’s Fund for London.
We celebrated Women’s Sports Week with our female Be the Best You Can Be! London ambassadors and partners Taylor Wimpey, we hosted the annual Magic Breakfast Event to review our wonderful Breakfast Clubs and we filled a room full of creative minds to discussing Year 2 activity for Creativity Works with our partner Berkeley Foundation.
Two more young Londoners started new jobs thanks to our brilliant Young London Working team and More London Hilton put on a successful open day on Friday, where ten young people had the chance to tour the hotel, ask questions and learn more about hospitality.
Quite a week!
Also still up for grabs are places in the Mayor’s Fund for London team for the London 10k (12th July) or Potential Ride London Surrey (2nd August). Find out more here.
