London for London is fundraising for three great causes that make an immense difference to young people across the capital. I encourage everybody who's out and about on Saturday October 3 to help play a part in tackling youth crime by digging deep and giving generously. I truly hope London for London is a great success.
London, UK (PRWEB) September 25, 2009
Leapanywhere.com, the social network that redefines volunteering through having a good time doing good, rallies the largest ever number of volunteers for a night out for charity in London. 1,000 volunteers are coming together to Leap on Saturday 3 October for the new charity initiative London for London which is uniting the capital by inviting anyone stepping out to enjoy its clubs, bars and pubs to part with a pound to help combat anti-social behaviour amongst young people. The new charity hopes to mobilise 1 million donors by asking people to do what they do anyway, enjoy London's nightlife.
The number of venues supporting the charity is forever growing, from major brands including Novus Leisure venues and the O'Neill's pub chain, to clubs / busy bars including Cargo (Cantaloupe Group), Ministry of Sound, Match bars (Match Bar Group) as well as some of London's hottest style bars like Maddox, Boujis and Whisky Mist. Mayor Boris Johnson, HRH Prince William, Basement Jaxx (Vula) and others are all in support as well. London for London 2009 is all about raising awareness of violence amongst young people in the capital and all funds raised will go to to improving children's lives through charities Kids Company,Volunteer Police Cadets and Help a London Child.

What the Founder of Leap Anywhere says…
"London for London is one of the world's most creative and cool ways to go out and have a good time whilst benefiting some fantastic causes. That's the winning formula for getting people involved in giving back and the whole team at Leap Anywhere is very excited to be involved helping to recruit the hundreds of volunteers that will be involved at the bars, clubs and pubs around town on the 3rd of October, the night no one stays in!"
Malcolm Scovil, Founder of Leap Anywhere
What's in it for the volunteers?
The chance to be part of the biggest fundraising event to ever hit London, a free London For London t-shirt, a free alcoholic beverage at the venue, and a starring role on Leap TV who will be documenting the evenings events. In addition every volunteer will have autonomy over their "patch"- volunteers can dress up (as long as they still visibly display the L4L t-shirt), paint their faces or charge a pound a hug, whatever takes their fancy.
What Boris Johnson says…
"London for London is fundraising for three great causes that make an immense difference to young people across the capital. I encourage everybody who's out and about on Saturday October 3 to help play a part in tackling youth crime by digging deep and giving generously. I truly hope London for London is a great success."

All volunteers will be asked to work a 4-6 hour shift, apart from those volunteers posted to a nightclub who will work a 4 hour shift- due to the later hours. Shifts will run as follows: 5.30pm- 11.30pm; 6.30pm- 12.30am (to accommodate those venues with a later license); 10pm- 2am (Nightclubs).
It's all about having a good time doing good. Just what the world needs.
