Aztec has nominated Creative Youth as their Charity of the Year in 2022 and has set a target of £6,000 which we aim to raise through a series of fundraising activities.
A team of 9 employees will carry out the Three Peaks Challenge in August 2022. The aim is to climb all three in just 24 hours. Starting with Ben Nevis in Scotland, followed by Scafell Pike in England, then finally onto Snowdon in Wales, walking over 23 miles with ascents totalling more than 10,000 feet. A minibus will transport everyone between the peaks, driving a total distance of approximately 500 miles with the team attempting to sleep and eat as they travel.
In September 2022, a team of Aztec employees will join the iconic London to Brighton Cycle Ride. This is a 55 mile ride taking riders from Clapham Common through the North & South Downs and ending on Brighton seafront.
In addition to its fundraising efforts, Aztec recently donated audio visual equipment required for Creative Youths’ Gala Dinner at Glenmore House in Surbiton which took place on the 30th March 2022. Creative Youth produce the FUSE International Festival in Kingston-upon-Thames each summer and Aztec has pledged to provide audio visual equipment for the organisers free of charge.
“We have supported Creative Youth in various ways for over 10 years, but we have never formalised our support” explains Aztec’s Managing Director, John Robson. “As we emerge from the pandemic, we feel that young people need our help more than ever. We decided that making Creative Youth our Charity of the Year would be a great way to achieve this, plus we could encourage our own employees to support this amazing local charity in a truly fun and engaging way.”
CEO of Creative Youth Louise Coles said “Aztec have been huge advocates and supporters of Creative Youth for many years, and we are really pleased they have named us their official charity of the year. It has been an incredibly challenging time for young people. Our work remains more important than ever and it is a huge boost that local businesses, such as Aztec, recognise our vital role”
