www.streetsmart.org.uk To add to StreetSmart, Jennie Blouet has also been working on setting up a similar scheme relating to hotel room nights under the SleepSmart banner which launched this year and has already signed up a fair number of hotels including The Zetter nearby the Barbican.


This new campaign aims to provide comfort and hope to people who live on the streets near hotels where guests stay in style and runs alongside StreetSmart during the months of November and December and guests in participating hotels will be asked to donate a voluntary £1 on their final hotel bill.


SleepSmart has already struck a chord with London hoteliers keen to give something back to the local community, and it promises great fund raising potential.


Lord Mayor’s Appeal 2012 - Fit for the Future


L


ord Mayor David Wootton’s chosen appeal theme ‘Fit for th


e Future’ aims


to promote better health opportunities for all, including those from some of the UK’s most deprived areas such as Tower Hamlets where 50% of local children live in poverty and where infant mortality is double the national average. 2012 will see the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee as well as the London Olympics and Paralympics so it’s an ideal time to make sure that we are all ‘Fit for the Future’. The money raised through the appeal will touch the lives of many by helping to improve trauma care, helping to relieve poverty and hardship and by giving young people from deprived areas new sporting opportunities. The Lord Mayor’s Appeal 2012 will help five charities – the primary being Barts and The London Charity on behalf of the Trauma Unit at The Royal London

he Trauma Centre at The Royal London Hospital is the UK’s flagship trauma and emergency centre and has pioneered and refined trauma care, leading to patients having a 38% greater chance of survival following major trauma than the national average. The centre is planning to use part of the money raised from the Appeal to purchase a revolutionary mobile scanner which will be one of only three in the UK. David Wootton says: “This ambitious Appeal will benefit many - those who are ill or injured and need top-class and immediate medical attention and those who need open spaces and sporting facilities to help enjoy healthier lives, a vital component of the London Olympics legacy...My sporting background is as an oarsman and I also want to use this Appeal to benefit charities that offer rowing as a healthy activity to disadvantaged young people, particularly in London.”
