South West Communications Group has pledged further support to the Prince’s Trust to add to the £30,000-plus it raised for the charity last year when taking part in their Million Maker fund raising scheme.

Million Makers is an annual drive that sees teams from across the UK compete against each other to raise the most money for the charity that helps young people into work, while also enhancing team-work, leadership and communication skills.

The Exeter-based telephony and data communications company won the race to raise the most money in their region in 2009. Having originally pledging to raise £20,000, they actually exceeded this total by more than 50% to raise £31,000. More than a third of this total was raised with a black tie ball at Sandy Park Stadium and the decision has been made to hold a similar event to raise further funds after South West Communications Group became a Prince’s Trust patron at the end of last year.

South West Communications Group’s managing director Harry Langley said: “In these current difficult economic circumstances, charitable revenue streams are drying up, which means ultimately our local vulnerable young people will suffer.

"Our sales director Sarah Flowers organised a fantastic ball last time with everyone having a great time and more importantly, a goodly sum of money was raised for local people through the Prince's Trust. Hopefully, with many local business people on the guest list, it will encourage them to take up support for the Trust as well themselves."

Former newspaper journalist, Caroline joined the company in 2008 with no previous knowledge of the industry.

She set about stripping back all the jargon to produce plain English marketing collateral to support the sales teams. Now slightly more well-versed in the dark arts of voice, connectivity and data services, Caroline writes blogs, case studies, data sheets and social media updates to engage with potential and existing customers.

This industry is far cry from her previous working life when she worked as communications manager for Exeter Chiefs and Northampton Saints.
