Matthew Hembrow Raises Awareness for the Princes Trust
Over the past 4 years Matthew Hembrow – Global Head for Media at Invenio and along with SAP, have rode in the UK’s Palace to Palace, Princes Trust Charity bike ride and this year was no exception.
Matthew rode along the 45 mile stretch from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle taking him just under 3 hours. Matthew was one of 4,000 cyclists who contributed to the already raised 1.1 million for the charity.
Matthew comments “I chose the princes trust because I saw two very different presentations from two young people who had explained how the money and support had changed their lives from near destitution and abusive lives to working with pride and even starting a business. Two genuinely moving presentations”.
The Prince’s Trust is a fantastic charity based in the UK and supports 13 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion. The Prince’s Trust will help 58,000 young people into training, education or employment this year. However, there are currently nearly one million unemployed young people in the UK. Many of the young people helped by The Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or they have been in trouble with the law.
Well done to all those who took part and raised money for such a good cause.
