Place2Be takes part in the Lord Mayor's Show
Samaritans, OnSide Youth Zones and Place2Be are the first charities to come together for the Lord Mayor’s Appeal.
The parade, organised by the City of London, is one of the best-known annual events in London. This year, we were delighted to take part and help Place2Be's Deputy Chair of Trustees, William Russell, celebrate his new role as Lord Mayor of London.
Since November 2017, Place2Be has been supported by the Lord Mayor of London through the Lord Mayor's Appeal. The Lord Mayor's Appeal brings together charities, business and communities to tackle London's most pressing social issues; and currently the appeal supports Place2Be, On Side Youth Zones and Samaritans.
Place2Be, On Side Youth Zones and Samaritans took to the streets of London with our float to raise awareness of the appeal and the important work of our charities. We were honoured to be joined by pupils from Sacred Heart Primary School in Islington who waved the flag for Place2Be.
The joint float contained a banner, along with the slogan ‘’someone to talk to, someone to listen’’, highlighting the nature of the vital support each organisation provides for children and adults across the country.
