Professional services body Alliance 4 the Black Country has joined forces with the Prince’s Trust for a second year.

During 2009, the alliance supported the trust to the tune of £3,200 and to celebrate the partnership a special event was held at the West Bromwich Albion football ground.

Johnathan Dudley, chairman of the alliance said “The Prince of Wales’s Charity has helped more than 575,000 young people since 1976 and supports 100 more each working day.

“We are delighted to continue our support for what I consider to be a great charity.”

The event featured presentations from two Prince’s Trust ambassadors, Benjamin Williams and Reuben Bowens, who have both managed to to turn their lives around and use their experiences to help others.
