‘Just One Day’ is an annual one day event where local communities, businesses and organisations are encouraged to come together and raise awareness and support fundraising for the Lord Mayor’s charity.
Each year the Lord Mayor nominates a charity close to their heart. This year’s Lord Mayor, Councillor Jane Dowson, has chosen
Candlelighters as her charity. The date for ‘Just One Day’ for this Mayoral Year will be held on Friday 18th May.
It is appreciated that a set date for organising a fundraising event may not always be convenient for everyone, or the best approach for their business or community, so it has been agreed to incorporate a ‘What’s Your Day” option whereby people can support the campaign in their own way and at a time more convenient to them. This might include a special visit by the Lord Mayor to your business, group, organisation or school on your designated day to say a big “Thank You!”.
