The Prince’s Trust has teamed up with Midlands accountancy firm PKF Cooper Parry to support more young people across Central England through fundraising and volunteering.

PKF Cooper Parry employees will volunteer on our Enterprise and Team programmes as well as taking part in fundraising initiatives including a Three Peaks Challenge and running marathons in Birmingham.

Young people will visit the PKF Cooper Parry offices during the firm’s Community Week and Global Entrepreneurship Week, where they will take part in business workshops and inspirational talks.

Ade Cheatham, Chief Executive of PKF Cooper Parry, said:

We are extremely proud to be partnering with The Prince’s Trust and to be supporting it as our nominated charity for the year. The Prince’s Trust does invaluable work, helping to change the lives of young people who for one reason or another are struggling to find their way in the world.

"By partnering with businesses like ours, as well as helping to raise much needed funds to continue its work, The Prince’s Trust has access to a pool of enthusiastic volunteers who can provide professional advice and guidance, as well as their time and energy. The partnership with The Trust fits perfectly with one of our core business values, which is to be generous and have fun."

Paul Beesley, Interim Director for The Prince’s Trust in Central England, said:

We are delighted to announce our partnership with PKF Cooper Parry, which will enable us to help more young people gain the skills they need to get into work.

PKF Cooper Parry will also support the development of the new Prince’s Trust Centre in Birmingham.
