The students took part in the Million Makers Challenge, which tasks university students and employees with raising £1million for the Trust – making a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged young people across the UK.â€¨â€¨
The London Met students raised £2,267, the highest amount in the country, and were named UK university winners at the Million Makers National Final in London’s Leicester Square. â€¨â€¨
â€¨Sarah Church, Million Makers manager at The Prince’s Trust, says: “We’re delighted that the London Metropolitan University was able to raise more than £2,000 for our youth charity – more than any other university has raised to date.
â€¨â€¨“The Million Makers at the university are helping us to continue delivering vital programmes to support young people, as well as provide one to one mentoring that will boost their confidence to get them back into work, education and training.” â€¨â€¨
The students were supported by staff members Anup Mistry and Tahera Huda, who also attended the Awards.
The London Met team was presented with their prize by famous actress and Prince’s Trust Ambassador, Brooke Kinsella.
