We are absolutely thrilled to have been selected by Credit Suisse as their UK Charity of the Year partner for 2019. We were selected through a staff vote after reaching a final shortlist of three charities.
The one-year partnership, which starts in January, will see Credit Suisse employees raising funds to support our early intervention work in schools, educating at-risk young people about the dangers of gang violence and knife crime.
Caroline Waddington, UK Chief Financial Officer at Credit Suisse said: “We are delighted that our employees have chosen St Giles Trust as our 2019 Charity of the Year. Their choice demonstrates the importance of your work at St Giles Trust and our commitment to support the role you play for young people at risk. We look forward to contributing to St Giles Trust preventive programme to ensure that children and young people are given the support to make positive choices.”
St Giles Trust Chief Executive Rob Owen OBE said: “We are delighted to have the support of Credit Suisse. This partnership will help us change the lives of so many vulnerable children and young people, preventing them from becoming the next generation of sad statistics by keeping them engaged with positive activities and role models. We are very much looking forward to work with Credit Suisse over the coming year.”
