It’s Celebrate Success season, and not only are we celebrating the achievements of our young people, this week we also celebrated the valuable support we receive from our corporate partners.

The 2016 Corporate Employee Awards, sponsored by Totaljobs and held at BMA House in London, recognised the fantastic achievements of our corporate partners and their employees. Our host for the evening was TV and Radio Broadcaster Nicholas Owen, and Prince’s Trust Young Ambassador John Sterry spoke about his Prince’s Trust journey.

This is a special year for The Prince’s Trust, as we celebrate our 40th Anniversary. In 2016, staff from all of our corporate supporters have gone above and beyond to change more young lives than ever before.

Impressively, over 70 corporate partners were shortlisted for the awards. Partners who had driven exceptional fundraising campaigns, given their time to support young people and shown huge commitment to improving employability were recognised on the night. 

Winners included:

  • NatWest, who took home an All Round Hero award for having partnered with us for over 16 years and raised over £21million during this time
  • Accenture, for scooping the Blazing Saddles award for raising over £73,000 for Palace to Palace
  • Cunard, for winning our special 40th Anniversary Achievement award

Ben Marson, Director of Corporate Partnerships said:

Thank you so much to all of the employees of our fantastic partners for your amazing effort and energy in support of UK’s young people. Thanks to you, we are able to give more vulnerable young people the chance they deserve.
