In 2015, the charity supported more than 56,000 young people into jobs, education and training.

A team of 10 employees from across the three offices of MHA Broomfield Alexander took up the challenge which began with a Dragon’s Den-style competition to secure £1,500 of seed funding. The team then undertook a range of activities, including a quiz night at the Cardiff Arms Park, a rugby gala evening at the Millennium Stadium, a scavenger hunt and a curry night, resulting in them exceeding their fundraising target by more than £4,000.
