(PRWEB UK) 29 May 2012
A team from Towry’s office in Manchester took part in the BUPA Great Manchester 10K Run 2012 this May to raise money for The Princes Trust.
Towry is a Patron of The Prince’s Trust, which helps change young lives, giving practical and financial support, developing key workplace skills such as confidence and motivation. It works with 13-to-30-year-olds who have struggled at school, have been in care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law. The charity has helped more than 650,000 young people since 1976 and supports 100 more each day. Last year, 80 per cent of young people supported by The Trust moved into work, education, training or volunteering.
The Bupa Great Manchester Run has seen over a quarter of a million enthusiastic runners pound the streets of Manchester since its first staging in 2003.
The team, made up of Towry employees from Manchester, raised over £1000 for The Princes Trust. Contributions were bolstered by The Towry Charitable Trust, which supports Towry employees in their charity fundraising activities.
Andrew Fisher, Chief Executive, commented:
“We are delighted that the Towry Charitable Trust is able to support our Manchester based team in raising funds for The Princes Trust. We thank everyone for their charitable donations so far towards this great cause.”
