Bowyers Charitable Outreach

Tuesday 26th September was the Lord Mayor's 'City Giving Day', when businesses in the City showcase their charitable and volunteering efforts. Three Bowyers, David Laxton, Nigel Heilpern and Richard Martin visited Aon's building in Leadenhall Street to cheer on Suited and Booted with their 8 hour, fund raising, static cycle challenge. Suited and booted is a, Bowyers supported, charity, that provides business attire to over 100 job-seekers every month to help them look the part for job interviews. The Lord Mayor (pictured left) also visited the Aon building to lend his support.

The following day, Upper Warden David Laxton and Renter Warden Nigel Heilpern visited Treloars in Alton, Hants, together with other livery companies, including the Needlemakers and the Cooks. The school, with 170 severely disabled children, has very long standing livery connections. The Bowyers are one of a large number of livery companies to make charitable contributions to its excellent causes. The highlight of the tour, other than meeting the pupils, who were delightful and most engaging, was the brand new PSV bus, donated by the Chartered Surveyors company (at a cost of a mere £285,000….), fitted out specially for multiple wheelchair access. Nevertheless, the school really still does appreciate our slightly more modest charitable contributions.
