This year Ashton Gate Stadium will be host to the Prince’s Trust Annual Red Dinner, and this year it happens to be the 40th anniversary of the charity since it was founded in 1976 by the Prince of Wales.
This year a ruby theme for the dinner will be in place to recognise the youth charity’s 40th anniversary, and all funds that are raised on the night will go towards supporting unemployed young people in the South West of England. Each year the Prince’s Trust works with around 60,000 people, with 80% of these people then moving onto Employment, Education, Training or Volunteering. Over the years the Prince’s trust has helped over 825,000 young people, creating 125,000 entrepreneurs and providing business support to over 395,000 all over the UK.
Chris Stock, MD at Percipient said “We are excited to be supporting the Prince’s Trust Annual Red Dinner, hosted by Bristol Sport at the Ashton Gate stadium. The Prince’s Trust do some fantastic work in helping young people and we are delighted to have the opportunity to support that. Bristol Sport are a key customer of ours at Percipient, it has been great to be involved with them over the last 18 months to support their business growth and watch them transform the stadium. We look forward to seeing inside the redeveloped venue on the night”

Champagne and canapes will kick start the night followed by a four course meal and an auction, selling a number of exclusive prizes along with a very valuable ruby which was donated by jewellers George Pragnell. With a £150,000 target to raise on the evening to go to the young people of the South West, the 600 people attending and buying the items on the auction will know that the money is going to a good cause. After the meal and auction the night will then finish with a live performance from Jamie Cullum, and ambassador of the Charity.
