The Lord Mayor’s Appeal 2012 will help five charities, the primary being Barts and The London Charity on behalf of the Trauma Unit at The Royal London Hospital. The Rowing Foundation, London Youth Rowing, Fields in Trust and Futures for Kids will also benefit, creating a healthier future for all.
Lord Mayor David Wootton’s chosen appeal theme ‘Fit for the Future’ aims to promote better health opportunities for all, including those from some of the UK’s most deprived areas such as Tower Hamlets where shockingly 50% of local children live in poverty and where infant mortality is double the national average.
2012 will see the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee as well as the London Olympics and Paralympics so it’s an ideal time to make sure that we are all ‘Fit for the Future’. The money raised through the appeal will touch the lives of many by helping to improve trauma care, helping to relieve poverty and hardship and by giving young people from deprived areas new sporting opportunities.
