School Club Zambia
School Club Zambia was founded in 2011 to help support community schools to become financially self-sufficient to up-scale vocational education and to improve employment potential in the community.
We support School Club Zambia by raising much needed funds for them through office tombolas & events; however the majority of the money that we donate comes from the sales of selected dishes in Bridge Bars, Beardmore and The Nicholas Culpeper where we donate a proportion of the sale to the charity. We have raised over £20k doing this since December 2014.
Manchester Enterprise Academy
Manchester Enterprise Academy is a school on Wythenshawe Council Estate in Manchester, one of their main sponsors is the neighbouring Manchester Airport. TRG Concessions have been working with the school since 2013 to create curriculum visits which give students the opportunity to go to our restaurants and order off the menu, try different foods, design smoothies and make their own pizzas – to name but a few of the activities. We also hold CV workshops for the Year 10’s and attended their Career Fairs as well as a number of events linked with food related calendar dates.
The Prince's Trust
The Prince's Trust is a youth charity that supports 13 to 30 year olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion. TRG Concessions support The Prince’s Trust programme by providing work experience placements at Luton Airport and giving them an insight into working life for 2 weeks. We often go on to employ the young people as permanent team members.
The Concessions team have raised over £10,500 for The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association and sponsored 17 Guide Dogs through various fundraising activities and sponsored events. Recently we raised £7,500 during Guide Dog week and the amount keeps growing. We are now on our way to Naming a Puppy.
