The 2015 Corporate Employee Awards took place in London earlier this week to recognise the fantastic support we get from the employees of our corporate partners, who give up their time and money to help us support young people on our courses across the UK.

Representatives from more than 50 of our corporate partners attended the event to celebrate the achievements of their employees, who raised a combined total of more than £2.2 million for The Trust and volunteered in excess of 9,000 hours last year. The night championed those who had gone above and beyond in their fundraising efforts through events like the London Marathon and the Arctic Challenge, as well as those who have given their time to help young people on our courses through volunteering and mentoring.

Winners include the 270 employees from Accenture who raised a whopping £82,000 through taking part in our Palace to Palace cycle ride, the Barclays employees who volunteered a total of 8,000 hours and raised a quarter of a million pounds with their bespoke cycle ride, and the Capita employees who raised a staggering £300,000 for us in the first year of their partnership.

Ben Marson, Director of Corporate Partnerships says:

A huge thank you to the dedication and commitment of all our partners. We are truly inspired by their efforts raising incredible funds and volunteering their time to help us support more disadvantaged young people each year.
