GL Hearn, which is part of Capita plc, is participating in the inaugural City Giving Day, promoting and celebrating corporate social responsibility and philanthropy in the city of London on the 30 September 2015. This event will highlight the value businesses and organisations have provided to good causes.

City Giving Day will see over 150 organisations and their employees undertake charitable work throughout the capital. The day will be an opportunity for GL Hearn’s London office to celebrate its fundraising and support of homeless charity, Providence Row.
 
Providence Row is dedicated to helping thousands of homeless and vulnerable people in London by offering advice, and practical measure to enable those sleeping rough on the capital’s streets with their journey to regain control over their lives.
 
To raise funds for Providence Row, GL Hearn and Capita’s real estate business are doing a cake bake off and sale, and guided walk for staff and business partners. Andrew Warde, a Director in Capita’s Rating team and City of London guide has volunteered to lead the walk. In exchange for the tour of remarkable architecture, participants can donate to Providence Row. All money raised will be fund-matched. The walk will also provide an opportunity to visit Providence Row and see how money and time donated in the past has helped homeless people. 
 
Anne-Marie Kesselman Head of Marketing and Corporate Responsibility at GL Hearn said:
 
“City Giving Day is an opportunity to raise awareness for good causes in and around the City of London. GL Hearn has, for a number of years, supported the local community and charities such as Providence Row. There has never been any shortage of enthusiasm for ‘giving something back’. City Giving Day encourages us to take stock of the good work that takes place not just on City Giving Day but throughout the year.”
 
GL Hearn will attend the Lord Mayor’s Dragon Awards on the 30 September 2015. The company won the ‘Strengthening the Third Sector’ Award for its partnership with Providence Row in 2014.
