It hardly seems two minutes since the 2016 Inter Livery Swimathon but already the details are in for 2017! The fundraiser will again be held at the RAC Epsom on Thursday 2 March 2017.
This event is organised by the Chartered Surveyors’ Company and is aimed at raising funds for charity. We usually send half the proceeds to the Lord Mayor’s charity and half to the Stationers’ Foundation. This year the funds raised from the Lord Mayor’s Appeal will support the LSO Discovery programme, St Paul’s Music Outreach and Music in Hospitals and more can be found out about them here.
Members will want to congratulate fellow Liveryman Lord Black for being appointed the position of Chairman of Council at The Royal College of Music (RCM).
Many thanks to Upper Warden Nick Steidl who alerted us to the mentions that the Company received on the Radio 4 Start the Week programme this morning. The programme focused on The Levellers who were revolutionaries who brought 17th century England to the edge of radical republicanism. In his biography (pictured and published by Verso), John Rees argues the Levellers are central figures in the country's history of democracy.
