Capgemini UK employees took part in the Palace to Palace challenge to raise money and awareness for the Prince's Trust, a UK charity that helps vulnerable young people get their lives on track, particularly those who are unemployed or struggling at school and at risk of exclusion.

Employees rode from Buckingham Palace in London through to Richmond Park and the Surrey countryside before finishing in Windsor - all for the brilliant cause of support young people on their journey to live, learn and earn.

Support from senior leaders

Senior leaders of Capgemini UK did their bit to support the charity by taking part in the race, such as Sally Caughey, Head of Digital Inclusion at Capgemini UK.

A important partnership to help young people

Like Code Your Future, the Prince's Trust is one of Capgemini UK's many digital partners. Capgemini UK is a Gold Patron of the charity and pledged to help change the lives of 600 disadvantaged young people in the UK by teaching them the skills that they need to develop a career in today’s digital economy. 

Through the 'Future Leaders' programme, officially launched by Gareth Southgate, Capgemini UK and the Prince's Trust are helping young people become self-aware and build confidence for career success.

A family affair 

As with many Capgemini events, the race was a family affair that involved the entire Capgemini community - both staff and their loved ones.

Paul Margetts, member of the Capgemini Group Executive Committee, completed the ride with his daughter Ella.
