Wednesday 23rd July lunchtime – Leila Thomas, Thomson Reuters Technical Project Manager and Community Champion, hosted a Charity Fundraising clothes Sale in Canary Wharf to help Urban Synergy Mentoring charity raise funds to help support more young people in London reach their full potential. We raised £800 for the cause – which includes Thomson Reuters match funding.
Urban Synergy is a London based early intervention outcome focussed mentoring charity that delivers services primarily through inspirational role models who provide encouragement and support to 11-18yr olds in London.
