Collinson is pleased to announce its support of The Royal Foundation

07 October 2016
Collinson has confirmed an agreement to support The Royal Foundation with a particular focus in the initial year on a single project, Coach Core.

The Royal Foundation is the primary charitable vehicle of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. The foundation focuses on three areas: supporting young people, conservation and those who have served in the armed forces.

The strength of the foundation is that it invests or partners carefully in charities and is able to create a multiplier effect which enables them to grow and succeed in a much larger scale. The Invictus Games is one of the better known examples of many.

Coach Core is a programme that recognises that sport has the potential to transform lives and engage those who are trapped in a cycle of poverty and isolation. The charity supports young people between 16 and 24, who have had a challenging start in life, to become the next generation of inspirational coaches.

Having seen the pilot schemes and those lives that have truly been transformed, Collinson has partnered with the Royal Foundation to support and help build on this success.

Colin Evans, Chairman, said: "I am very proud to be able to say that Collinson has confirmed an agreement to support The Royal Foundation. This marks a first step in what will be a more structured approach to how we can better leverage our own success to help others."
