Dawson Walker was represented in the recent Palace to Palace bike ride in London by MD Ralph Dawson, who donned the lycra to support the Prince’s Trust Charity. The ride, which is just under 50 miles, goes from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle and raises thousands of pounds for disadvantaged young people. Ralph, who raised over £1500 for this worthy cause, took part in the event along with over 4000 other cyclists.

Ralph commented,

The ride was great fun and well supported by spectators along the route. I would also like to thank my generous sponsors for their support, which I suspect may have been secured in some part by me threatening to send pix of me in lycra if people didn’t contribute appropriately!

About the Prince's Trust

We give practical and financial support to disadvantaged young people, developing key workplace skills such as confidence and motivation. We work with 13 to 30-year-olds who have struggled at school, have been in care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law.

The Prince’s Trust has helped more than 750,000 young people since 1976, and support 100 more each working day. More than three in four young people we helped last year moved into work, education or training.

Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training. Youth unemployment costs the UK economy £10 million a day in lost productivity, while youth crime costs £1 billion every year.

The Prince’s Trust is an approachable and diverse organisation which values and respects people’s different backgrounds, characteristics, ideas and beliefs. It is responsive to the needs of young people, staff, volunteers, delivery partners and all stakeholders.
