Young people’s charity The Prince’s Trust and The Denholm Group have formally renewed their partnership affirming an ongoing commitment to create lasting positive change for young people, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The Denholm Group has partnered with The Prince’s Trust since 2019. During that time, Denholm has contributed over £100,000 to support young people via company donations and staff fundraising, as well as providing career insights for school children as a host for The Prince’s Trust ‘World of Work’ events.
Operating in shipping, logistics, seafoods and industrial services and in over 50 locations across the UK, Denholm is a prominent employer in many local communities. The Group supports young people by offering apprenticeships, which combine work experience and on-the-job training with studying towards a formal qualification. Extending its patronage of The Prince’s Trust confirms the importance Denholm places on helping young people develop the skills they need for a fulfilling career.
Ben MacLehose, CEO of The Denholm Group, commented, “Renewing our patronage of The Prince’s Trust is the natural step forward for The Denholm Group. Since becoming a patron in 2019, it has been wonderful to witness the growing involvement of Denholm employees in the charity, including their participation in the Trust’s annual fundraising challenge, ‘Future Steps’. Listening to Young Ambassadors explain first-hand how The Prince’s Trust helped them overcome major life challenges has been particularly heartening. I look forward to hearing many more inspiring stories of how the Prince’s Trust has helped support young people to achieve their goals.”
Tom Keer, Interim Director of Corporate Partnerships said: “We’re delighted to continue our partnership with Denholm and grateful for their commitment to The Prince’s Trust, which helps to inspire, empower and nurture young people on our programmes to secure a better future for themselves. Young people are currently facing multiple challenges and this ongoing support will help to increase their confidence and build the skills they need to reach their full potential.”
Renewal of the partnership was formally recognised at an event on 5th September at The Prince’s Trust’s Centre in Manchester.
