For many years now, the Briggs & Forrester Group have been proud supporters of youth charity, The Prince’s Trust. As a business who strive to build the skills of young people and openly invests into supporting their future career prospects, it’s clear to see that the charity and business share a similar goal of inspiring young people and changing their lives for the better.
Founded in 1976 by, HRH The Prince of Wales, The Prince’s Trust supports young people aged 11-30 from all over the UK. The Trust works with delivery partners throughout the UK to offer a wide range of courses, grants and mentoring opportunities to help kick start the careers of young people. To date The Prince’s Trust has returned £1.4 billion in value to society through their help supporting young people over the last 10 years.
Inspired by the incredible work that The Trust do, the Briggs & Forrester Group wanted to be a part of helping the charity continue doing what they do. Without their work, many young people wouldn’t have the support or even the opportunity to commence their career.
To help fundraise for the charity, Briggs & Forrester held a variety of events during 2019, including the Group’s Bi-Annual Charity Golf Day held last June. In support of The Prince’s Trust, throughout the day guests took part in fun challenges including a prize raffle to help raise further funds. Altogether, the Group have donated £20,000 to the Trust through the Briggs and Forrester Foundation which is managed by the Northamptonshire Community Foundation.
The Prince’s Trust give much needed hope to the young people who need it. The Briggs & Forrester Group are proud to say that through this donation they will help to support more than 13,450 young people across central England, including more than 250 in Northamptonshire.
Jamie Roberts, Head of Philanthropy at The Prince’s Trust, said: “The Prince’s Trust is extremely grateful to all the staff at Briggs & Forrester and Supply Chain for their continued support. This generous gift will enable The Trust to help more young people build their confidence, resilience and the skills they need to succeed. With three in four young people we work with, moving into work, training or education, we look forward to building on this partnership, which will help to transform the lives of young people across the UK.”
The Briggs & Forrester Group will continue to support The Trust and help them with reaching their goal of supporting their first one million young people.
