A team of employees from The Watches of Switzerland Group is raising money for the Prince’s Trust this weekend by taking part in the Palace to Palace Bike Ride.
The event takes place on Sunday, October 6, and involves cycling the 45 mile Classic or 90 mile Ultra route from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle, through Richmond Park and the Surrey countryside.
The billion dollar group will be represented by colleagues from Goldsmiths, Mappin & Webb and Watches of Switzerland retail stores along with top brass from head office.
In addition, on Sunday 13th October, another WoS team is taking part in the Royal Park Half Marathon in support of the charity.
An initial target to raise upwards of £10,000 for the Prince’s Trust has already been exceeded. The Palace to Palace team, alone, has currently hit £11,250 on its Just Giving page.
The Watches of Switzerland Group has partnered with The Prince’s Trust since 2013. The charity offers life-changing experiences to young entrepreneurs who have started their own businesses.
Earlier this year The Watches of Switzerland Group supported the Princes Trust as they marked it’s 100 years in business with Rolex.
As part of its centenary year, The Watches of Switzerland Group partnered with Rolex to provide 100 watches each with a commemorative engraving to mark the anniversary. For each watch sold, £3,000 will be donated to support The Prince’s Trust.
