Euroclear celebrates City Giving Day across 9 locations!
Euroclear has been a keen participant in the Lord Mayor of London's successful City Giving Day since the start, but this year we broke all records, holding the event in London, Brussels, Paris, New York, Amsterdam, Bishop's Stortford, Krakow, Stockholm and Helsinki.
A record number of colleagues attended in all locations this year and there was plenty going on. We invited all our charity partners across all locations to come along and engage with our staff and we held fundraising challenges, competitions, lotteries and impressive cake sales.. raising money for a whole range of worthwhile causes.
In Brussels, Greenlight for Girls ran a workshop for the daughters of our staff and in London some intrepid colleagues took part in the tough Tour de City static bike challenge.
Our CEO also took advantage of this occassion to make a surprise announcement to celebrate our 50th anniversary - in a video Lieve Mostrey revealed that this year we will be donating a stunning one million euros to charity. This donation will be split across local charities, with each project receiving EUR 25,000 and Build Africa, our corporate charity, who will receive EUR 500,000. We'll be providing updates throughout the year.
