“The Lord Mayor’s Balloon Regatta® has established itself as one of the City of London’s key cultural highlights. It is a fantastic celebration of the City’s charity, community and commerce working together, which is what the City – and the Lord Mayor – is all about.
Every year, the Regatta® raises awareness and funding for the charity work of theLord Mayor’s Appeal, which will concentrate on four initiatives: Power of Diversity, This is Me, She Can Be… and City Giving Day. These initiatives will respectively focus on promoting inclusive workplaces, reducing the stigma around mental health, empowering young women, and supporting philanthropy among City companies and employees. Supported by the Regatta, Ricoh and other corporate partners, the Appeal has at its core the aim of building an inclusive, healthy, fair, and skilled city – in other words, A Better City for All.”
