The Home Buying team at The White Company are raising money for The Prince’s Trust, Refuge and Place to be. Members of our team are running a half marathon or 10k on the 3rd March to raise money for these brilliant charities and we would really appreciate any support you can offer. We have already raised some money internally, but we want to go above and beyond and raise all we can. We’re sure you’ll agree that the work these guys do is truly inspirational and every penny we raise will go to support their work – thank you
The Prince’s Trust:
Many of the young people we help are in, or leaving, care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health issues, or have been in trouble with the law.
We have returned £1.4 billion in value to society through our help for disadvantaged young people over the last 10 years alone.
Our free programmes give young people the practical and financial support they need to stabilise their lives. We help them develop key skills while boosting their confidence and motivation so they can continue to dream big.

We aim to empower women and children to rebuild their lives, free from violence and fear. We provide a range of life-saving and life-changing services, and a voice for the voiceless.
