Over many years the CIH Presidential Appeal has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for charities and good causes across the world. Geraldine Howley, the current President, has chosen the Prince’s Trust as the focus of the Presidential Appeal for 2015-16.
"We work with people aged 13-30 who are either struggling in education, at risk of exclusion, through to those who are long term unemployed," explains the Trust. "We strive to help those who are hardest to reach. Many people we work with face issues such as homelessness, mental health problems, or have a history of substance abuse. We support these young people to get their lives working, whether that means accessing education, employment or training.”
Geraldine said: “A real passion for me is improving the lives of young people and I hope you will support my chosen charity, the Prince’s Trust”
In June, Geraldine will be taking to the water on Lake Windermere – in the Great North Swim – to get things started. Donate online. Fancy joining Geraldine on her fundraising journey? You could take part in a challenge event and run, cycle or trek to raise funds, hold a fundraising event with your team or volunteer.
