As Sir Alan Sugar continues to test the remaining candidates in the fifth series of The Apprentice, the Geared for Giving campaign gathered together four of the previous contestants to help set a challenge for the business leaders of the future.
Syed Ahmed, Raef Bjayou, Tre Azam and Kristina Grimes all attended the first anniversary of the Geared for Giving campaign last night to help spread the word about Workplace Giving.
It’s not just former Apprentices who are signing up to the campaign. Kavita Oberoi and Carl Hopkins, both Secret Millionaires, joined the former Apprentices to add their support to the campaign.
The Geared for Giving campaign has already raised pledged sums of £678,054.52 annually for 1,082 different charities and given an extra half a million people easy access to the scheme.
Anne Snelgrove MP, who hosted the event at Portcullis House, encouraged the many business leaders present to continue to sign up to the campaign so that the further half a million employees could easily access the scheme.
Anne commented; ‘I entered politics for a simple reason – to make a difference. The Geared for Giving campaign is doing just that, but although we are half way there we still have a long way to go. All of us here can play our part, so please pledge your support tonight’.
