Lloyds Banking Group has been involved in City Giving Day for the past 3 years and every year, we have successfully grown the event. CGD provides the perfect opportunity to engage all stakeholders including colleagues, clients, charities and small businesses in the organisation's responsible business initiatives which are reinforced by our 'Helping Britain Prosper' plan. CGD also enables us to highlight the work of our London Ambassador Programme which focuses on 3 main themes; technology, people and regeneration, all underpinned by a desire to support and invest in communities in London. £CGD has enabled us to engage more staff in our volunteering programmes and London Ambassador Initiatives whilst also providing an opportunity to upskill colleagues and community groups with their digital skills. It raises the profile of the company's volunteering schemes with all stakeholders making it a better place to work, a better company to do business with and a better corporate neighbour. Over 500 colleagues and community stakeholders attended our event last year and over 250 staff signed up to new volunteering initiatives which shows the positive impact CGD creates.
Hear from Alanah Bushnell, Innovation Programme Manager & CGD project lead about why she was happy to get involved in City Giving Day CGD is a great initiative and enables us to showcase the great work that we do to support young people, disadvantaged people, and other community groups in London to help them improve their lives. We don't celebrate success enough and CGD allows to do this in a fun and enlightening way that attracts more colleagues to want to get involved in supporting worthy causes through volunteering and fundraising within the community.
