Our partnership with the Prince’s Trust

CGI is a patron of The Prince’s Trust. Through our partnership, our members share their skills and experience through the charity’s volunteering programme and by hosting regular ‘World of Work’ days at our offices. These events form part of The Trust’s Team Programme. They’re an opportunity for young people to visit their local CGI office, see and hear about what we do as well as practice their interview skills with our members.

Through our Community Ambassador programme we also hold regular fundraising activity for The Trust and join in with its calendar of fundraising activity.

For the last three years CGI has entered a team in the Palace to Palace and 2017 is no exception - in October, 35 CGI members will be joining thousands of other cyclists undertaking the 45 mile route from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle.

As part of our partnership with The Trust, CGI also enter a team into their annual entrepreneurial challenge, The Million Makers. This year our “Team Engima” will be hoping to be the winning team in the Welsh region with their innovative fundraising ideas.

To celebrate CGI’s and the Prince’s Trust 40th respective birthdays in 2016, CGI organised a big fundraising and volunteering programme for the Trust. Through member organised sponsored walks, abseils, bake sales, “Wear Red” day, our Palace to Palace team and numerous other events, CGI donated £112K to the Trust.
