Tascomi believe that it is important to remember that not everyone is as fortunate as we are. We each face difficulties in our own lives, but these can be put into perspective when compared to the trials faced by others in our local community.
As a local company, we are keen for opportunities to give back. Collectively we can make a difference – and we will!
The 2nd May 2016 saw thousands of experienced athletes, and those trying to raise money for a good cause, taking to the streets of Belfast for this year’s Belfast City Marathon. We took part in the Belfast Fun Run to raise funds for a worthy cause – The Prince’s Trust and we were delighted to raise just under £600. This is the first of numerous events we hope to organise this year in order to support the charity.
Later this year at our annual Customer Conference we are hoping to give our valued customers an opportunity to find out more about the work of The Prince’s Trust and also an opportunity to support their work. Keep your eyes peeled for further information closer to the time.
Furthermore, we have just recently committed to sponsoring a ‘Prince’s Trust Achieve Programme’ in Laurelhill, Lisburn. The programme will help 13-19 year olds develop the skills and confidence they need to reach their goals, through relevant, engaging and informal learning. Education should prepare young people for the future they want, however, many experience challenges with attendance, attainment and motivation; putting them at risk of underachieving or exclusion. The Achieve programme is designed to help young people re-engage with education and support them to achieve their full potential. Tascomi are looking forward to being involved.
The Prince’s Trust helps disadvantaged young people in the UK to change their lives and get into work, education or training. This year, The Trust aims to support 58,000 vulnerable young people, helping to give them the skills and confidence to find a job. They cannot do this without our vital support.
