Someone (an employee of a company) or a group of people (otherwise known as an “organisation”) who quietly, humbly and discreetly goes about being a force for good.
Our official charity is The Prince’s Trust, and we run accelerated leadership events for Trust Young Ambassadors – young people who have turned their lives around and are now dedicated to helping others to do the same.
Each of these sessions is held on a company site – in the past these have included Coutts and Woking FC – and last week’s day was held in St. Helen’s, at a company I had never heard of, Flamco.
As with all other Prince’s Trust partners, they could not do enough for us – facilities, refreshments and most importantly ensuring that all attendees have a memorable, comfortable and life-changing experience.
And none of the Prince’s Trust supporting companies have asked me to mention them in this way.
So, the purpose of this message is threefold – to openly thank all companies who help charities in such a direct and frequent way, to acknowledge that in a world of media obsessed “corporate greed” most companies (people) are a force for good and to ask you if you know any company that would donate a room for the use of The Prince’s Trust in this way.
With thanks to Janice Sanderson, HR Manager, Flamco, and my love to you all.
