Prince’s Trust and EMC Leadership Dinner Raises over £507,000
Last month The Prince’s Trust and EMC hosted a leadership dinner at The Royal Courts of Justice to raise money for the charity. Across a range of auction prizes from a Transatlantic crossing on board Queen Mary 2 and artwork from Ben Mosley, the event raised an incredible £507,000. The auction was hosted by newsreader Katie Derham, along with speeches from HRH The Prince of Wales and Richard Scudamore, chief executive of the Premier League, and was attended by the UK’s business leaders.
Our UK MD James Petter describes how, “In the five years that we have been working with the Prince’s Trust, I have continuously been astounded by the positive impact that this organisation has made on young people all across the country. I am proud of what we across the Technology Leadership Group have achieved so far. With one in five young people looking for work there has never been a more important time to provide them with support. This community is making a significant impact on the lives of thousands of young people across the UK and this evening’s fundraising has been a further opportunity to show our support.”
In October, EMC announced that we have become a Gold Patron of the charity and have been working on a number of initiatives over the past six months to support their efforts. EMC became a Silver Patron of The Prince’s Trust in 2010 and has been a member of The Trust’s Technology Leadership Group for a number of years.
