We’d like to say thank you to HSBC, who will be supporting 3,750 schoolchildren on our ACE for Schools Programme over the next three years. We have worked with HSBC since 2011 and in that time, they have funded over 10,000 schoolchildren through our programme. Through the support of HSBC, thousands of London schoolchildren have received vital soft skills development training, which has helped raise their aspirations and to succeed in the next steps of their choosing. We have also been supported by HSBC volunteers with mock interviews and feedback, giving the children valuable insight into the business world, as well as improving their confidence and motivation. We work with schools which have high numbers of disadvantaged pupils, so HSBC’s generous funding has, and will continue to have, a real impact on improving social mobility across London schools.
Our Chief Executive, Tunde Banjoko OBE, said: “We are extremely grateful to HSBC for their continued support, which is, and has been, crucial to our work of changing young lives”.
