Charity gets £68,000 boost from student entrepreneurs
Youth charity the Prince's Trust has received a £68,000 donation from a group of student entrepreneurs.
A team from Bristol University won the contest with a national student art competition, exhibition and auction. The exhibits raised £25,000 of the final sum.
All proceeds will support the charity’s work in helping young disadvantaged people into work.
“Profitunity! has harnessed the creativity of the student population to help us change the lives of hundreds of disadvantaged young people,” said Julian Barrell, director of fundraising at the Prince’s Trust. “The students have done a phenomenal job in helping us to raise the £1m every week we need to continue our work.”
