Monday 2 March kicks off a week of celebration at Boeing offices across the country as they mark the 15th anniversary of our partnership. This partnership has raised over £1.2 million and has allowed The Trust to fund 22 Achieve clubs and two annual Get Started in Product Design, benefitting thousands of young people each year. 

Achieve clubs are run in schools and youth centres across the UK, helping young people to learn and engage with education in a flexible way. Young people on the programme will work together to deliver a community project in their local area as well as learning new skills and taking on a business challenge.  

This week, Boeing will be celebrating through a number of fundraisers including: a sponsored sleepout, cake sales and fancy dress as well as hosting lunch and learns to recognise all the amazing achievements made through the partnership. 

Sir Martin Donnelly, president of Boeing Europe and managing director of Boeing UK and Ireland says:

This year marks a special milestone in the history of Boeing's community activity in the UK. We have support The Prince's Trust for 15 years - it's our longest charity partnership in this country and one that has had a real and lasting impact on the lives of so many young people.

Ben Marson, Director of Partnerships - Corporate & Government at The Prince's Trust says:

Our partnership with Boeing is an example of what can be achieved when there is a mutually committed desire to support young people to thrive in society. The Prince’s Trust would like to thank Boeing for supporting our work for over 15 years and raising over £1.2 million. It’s the invaluable commitment shown by such partners that has allowed the Trust to support more than 950,000 young people to date. We look forward to working with partners like Boeing for many more years to come.
