EMC becomes a Gold Patron of the Prince’s Trust
EMC has this year announced that it has become a Gold Patron of youth charity The Princes Trust, and will be engaging in a number of initiatives to provide practical and financial support for the charity’s vital work with disadvantaged young people. The Princes Trust was established in 1976 by HRH The Prince of Wales. It focuses on running programmes encouraging young people to take responsibility for themselves, helping them to build the life they choose through work, education and training. To continue this support, they rely upon generous giving and fundraising from a wide range of people.
In 2010, EMC became a Silver Patron of The Prince’s Trust and has been a member of the Trust’s Technology Leadership Group (TLG) for a number of years. Set up in 2002, The TLG is a leading fundraising and networking forum for companies and individuals involved in the UK’s technology, media and telecoms industries.
At the end of October 2013, EMC held a gala dinner at the Savoy hotel to help raise money for the charity. When EMC started the challenge, they set an ambitious target to raise over £100k for the Prince’s Trust. At the Savoy event itself, over £40k was generously donated, truly reflecting the efforts and dedication the team has put towards ensuring a successful outcome.
As it stands, EMC has surpassed its target and has currently raised over £110k – a phenomenal amount for a very worthy cause.
