LMF helping at Operation London Bridge

LMF Founder, Roger Oldham, was proud to be part of the Operation London Bridge project, following the sad passing of HM Queen Elizabeth II. Roger, who has been an active member of Team London since the 2012 Olympic Games, through the Mayor's Office, spent the weekend helping to marshal the tens of thousands of people visiting the Royal Parks, laying floral tributes. Commenting about the experience, Roger said "I was honoured to be asked to help at such an important and historic time. During my time on duty, I must have spoken to over three hundred visitors from all over the world. Some had flown in especially to be here to pay their respects. Seeing people of all ages, beliefs and cultures, paying their respects in such a way was extremely moving. It'll be something I remember forever. I was proud to be part of this most important time where the world came together to honour such an incredible Sovereign"

LMForums and The London Market raises raises £2,430.63 for the Rainbow Trust

Every year, LMForums selects a charity to be involved with and benefit from their biggest event, the Market People Awards. In 2019, LMForums selected the incredible Rainbow Trust, supporting families with a seriously ill child.

The 2019 Market People Awards were a huge success and as usual, those attending were most generous in supporting the Grand Prize Draw. By the end of the evening £2,430.63 had been raised for the charity, which is enough to provide over 70 hours of support to families with sick children.

Roger Oldham, Founder of LMForums commented “we are truly delighted and proud to have raised so much for this amazing charity. The generosity of London Market is well known and they certainly showed it on the night of the Awards. Amazing!”

Jamie Davis of the Rainbow Trust said "It's been so great seeing so many people from the insurance industry being really supportive of Rainbow Trust. Being the beneficiary charity of the Market People Awards will help us provide 79 hours of practical and emotional support for families with seriously ill children."

LMForums and The London Market raises £10,000 in 2017 for Haven House Children's Hospice

2017 was a year of growth and evolution for LMForums, with a number of new styled events, including a mid year Charity Fashion Gala, which was not only a lot of fun but raised over £8,000 for our charity of the year, Haven House Children’s Hospice. This was thanks to the amazing generosity of the London Market professionals who attended this spectacular event at the incredible Banking Hall opposite the Bank of England. Through a mixture of a Grand Prize Draw and a Charity Auction the funds came flooding in that night and all monies went straight to this truly remarkable charity. During the evening one of the parents who’d benefited from the support from the hospice when their child had passed away, gave an emotional speech, recounting his experience of the support he and his wife had received.

A few weeks later, we went to visit the charity at the hospice, on the borders of London and Essex, in its amazing woodland setting. It was a visit that none of us will forget. The work undertaken at the hospice and the care given is beyond words and we were both moved moved and filled with admiration at the same time. In December 2017 at the 2nd Market People Awards our friends from Haven House returned and through another prize packed Draw, we raised almost £2,000. LMForums would like to thank all of our members, friends and business associates for their kind generosity during 2017 which helped in raising £10,000 for an incredible charity. Thank you to all the staff from Haven House who came to our events to promote their charity and assist in the running of our two big social gatherings.

We would encourage any London Market firms looking to support a charity as part of the CSR activities to reach out to Haven House - their work and dedication to the cause is remarkable. It’s their 15th Birthday this year and they are going through a big modernisation programme.

LMForums charity for 2018 is Kids Inspire - an Essex based children’s charity assisting vulnerable young people and their families.
