It works with 13-to-30-year-olds who have struggled at school, have been in care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law.
The Prince of Wales’ charity has helped more than 650,000 young people since 1976 and supports 100 more each day.
In November 2011, the charity hosted a fundraising dinner at The Pavilion at the Tower of London which provided a fantastic evening of entertainment, in an iconic London setting for some of their key supporters.
The venue lent itself to the event perfectly, with separate areas for the reception drinks and disco and a state-of-the-art production installation, which was key to the guest speakers and the all-important charity auction.
The event was hosted by Chris Hollins, who entertained the audience throughout the evening with stories from his winning performances on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ in 2009. We were also thrilled to be joined by Terry Venables and Richard Bevan, Chief Executive of League Managers Association who shared the stage with Prince’s Trust ambassador Gabby Logan for some lively industry banter.
Money raised from the evening will go towards supporting young people into work. Last year, The Trust helped 50,000 young people with more than three in four moving into work, education or training.
