We’re pleased to publish our annual review of the year 2011-2012. It was a great year for Friendship Works with lots of change, but lots of progress too.
As well as a succession of hugely successful fundraising events such as our London to Paris cycle challenge which raised £250k and our flagship Gala Show ‘An Evening with the Stars’, which raised £115k, we also ended the year on a high note with the news of our new three-year corporate partnership with the London Stock Exchange Group.
It was a great year for service expansion too, as we grew our mentoring services for young people by 36%. We also worked to spread the word about volunteering, which resulted in an increase in volunteer applications from 396 in the previous year, to over 1100 last year.
2012 so far has been a year of change as we continue on our journey to provide more mentors for more young people. We look forward to keeping you updated as we go.
