Christine Hodgson, Capgemini UK Chairman and Anne Cave-Penney, Head of Alliances and TLG Committee member, co-hosted the ceremony, which was attended by representatives from 24 technology organisations. The awards were presented by John Caterer, Vice Chair of TLG and Rob Richardson, captain of the men’s British Sitting Volleyball team.
Anne Cave-Penney (pictured above with John Caterer and Rob Richardson) said: “It was a great evening and I’m delighted Capgemini were part of it. The Prince’s Trust offer invaluable support to disadvantaged young people and it was amazing to hear just how much impact TLG members own employees have had over the last year.”
Chi Kurangwa, The Prince’s Trust Corporate Partnerships Manager commented: “A really massive thank you for hosting the Prince’s Trust annual TLG Employee awards last night. The support we had from yourselves was phenomenal and ensured that our guests had a fantastic experience. Everyone commented on how fantastic the venue, canapés and drinks were. We also had a fantastic turnout of just over 80 people because of the central location, so thank you all so much.”
TLG employees support The Prince’s Trust through a variety of activities from participating in challenges like Palace to Palace and Wild UK to volunteering and mentoring. As well as providing an opportunity to support individuals who need it the most, working with The Prince’s Trust provides TLG employees opportunities for personal skills development and an excellent forum for networking with clients and partners.
