Mayor’s Fund for London is FIVE!
The Mayor’s Fund for London celebrated its fifth birthday in style on Tuesday night. One of our trustees, Lord Stanley Fink, and his wife, Lady Barbara Fink, hosted a special party in their St Pancras penthouse. The occasion was to celebrate our fantastic achievements, and the young Londoners with whom we have worked over the years.
Our Youth Board, (aged 14-24) explained the charity’s work and successes to guests that included our Patron, Boris Johnson. Their dynamic presentation brought to life the many skills and opportunities we have created for young Londoners.
Boris also added his congratulations before blowing out birthday candles with Lord Fink, Richard Desmond, Ian Mukherjee, Dr Chai Patel and Michael Sherwood.
Mayor’s Fund for London Chair of Trustees, Paulette Rowe, addressed the audience with trustees Michelle Pinggera, Ian Mukherjee, Tim Roberts, Ian Livingstone, Sir Stephen O’Brien and Lesley King-Lewis present. Chief Executives and Managing Directors of some of London’s leading businesses and peers of the realm were also at the party.
Lord Fink said: “The Mayor’s Fund for London has achieved great things over the years and I am very proud to be one of the founding trustees. It has equipped thousands of young Londoners with the skills and opportunities to get a decent job. Over the next three years, our aim is to help another 50,000 young people in London.” Of the Mayor’s Fund for London micro-donation scheme that launched recently, Lord Fink added, “If we can get half a million people signed up to Penny for London, it will make a huge difference to young Londoners over the next five years and into the future.”
