PYBT @40

Celebrating 40 years of The Prince's Youth Business Trust Jon Williams and Sarah Monk Throwing Together Circa 1995

A heartfelt congratulations to The Princes Trust as it celebrates 40 years of helping disadvantaged young people in a myriad of different ways.

When Sarah and myself graduated in 1992 we were given tremendous support and financial assistance to help kick start our businesses.

A generous setting-up grant from The Princes Youth Business Trust enabled us to purchase a brand new kiln and a couple of Shimpo potter’s wheels at a time when we had very little resources. In fact, we would never have been able to make the kind of impact we did at such an early point in our careers without the help of the Trust.

Thank you HRH, we are big fans!
