Over the course of the year the team at AdamsonJones will be taking part in a number of events and initiatives with the aim of raising money for The Prince’s Trust and Narcolepsy UK.
The Prince's Trust provides support to disadvantaged young people to help them become the entrepreneurs of the future. Around one in 5 young people in the UK are not in work, education or training. Youth unemployment costs the UK economy £10 million a day in lost productivity, while youth crime costs £1 billion every year. The Trust addresses this by giving practical and financial support to the young people who need it most. It helps develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling young people to move into work, education or training. The Prince's Trust is celebrating 30 years of its Enterprise Programme, supporting young people to explore self-employment. AdamsonJones is raising money to help more young people set up in business.
Narcolepsy is an illness, affecting around 30,000 people in the UK, which can cause the sufferer to fall asleep in unusual places or circumstances. Narcolepsy is being better controlled than ever before by a range of drugs and sleep hygiene methods but to date no cure exists. This is a charity with which AdamsonJones has a personal connection, as a daughter of one of the team suffers from narcolepsy.
Our first event is the White Peak Challenge 25 mile walk taking place on Sunday 23 June. This is an open event organised by AdamsonJones, so any of our clients and business contacts are welcome to participate; please do contact us on 0115 947 7977 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join us for part or all of this walk.
Our fundraising page will feature regular progress updates, photos of our efforts, and information about our nominated charities, as well as news on forthcoming events such as the Derby triathlon and the Robin Hood Nottingham Sweatshop relay challenge, which we will be undertaking in September.
