Completed one year's fundraising for the Prince's Trust

Fundraising Efforts

Timez Design was instrumental last year in raising just over £10,000 for the Prince's Trust.

Timez design was actually started with a loan from the PT in 1998. it was therefore a huge thrill to raise money for them. This was not the first time we have been involved in raising money for the Trust and guess what? We are doing it again this year.

We will try and keep you updated on this forum but please do give us a call in the mean time if you think you'd like to help.

The Prince's Trust is an amazing organisation which helps thousands of young people every year.
