The Prince’s Trust, a charity that champions young people, has received £5,000 from the Pavers Foundation.
The donation, which was made on behalf of the Managing Director of Pavers Shoes, Stuart Paver, was given to the Trust through The Big Give’s match funding campaign, as such the donation was doubled to an amazing £10,000.
Founded by the Prince of Wales in 1976, the trust helps to transform the lives of 11-30 year olds who are unemployed or struggling at school. Many of the young people supported by the Prince’s Trust are in, or leaving care, facing problems such as homelessness or mental health issues, or have been in trouble with the law. Through various initiatives and programmes, the Trust helps to equip young people with skills and resources that will help them achieve their goals.
Since establishing, the Prince’s Trust has helped to support more than 900,000 young people across the UK.
Karen Webster, Head of Philanthropy in the North, said:
“Stuart has been a supporter of The Prince’s Trust for nearly 10 years and his kind donations have helped many young people to live, learn and earn, through the delivery of the Enterprise programme in Yorkshire. Over the years these gifts have helped The Trust to find and develop the next generation of young entrepreneurs in the region. We’d like to say a big thank you to Stuart for his continued support”.
The Foundation is delighted that through The Big Give, the Prince’s Trust were able to receive such a fantastic amount. We hope this donation will go on to help the many young people in need of the Trust's support.
