Donation to TACT

Last week we visited the team at TACT Fostering & Adoption in Liverpool to donate a brand new Nintendo Wii U console and some games to the centre.

TACT is the UK’s largest charity and voluntary agency providing fostering and adoption services. Their core work involves providing high quality and well supported fostering or adoptive families for children and young people in the care of local authorities.  Working in partnership with local authorities from across England, Wales and Scotland, they are dedicated to providing creative, effective and outcome-focused services. They also campaign on behalf of children and young people in care, carers and adoptive families. To find out more about TACT, click here.

The team at the centre were extremely appreciative of our donation which will be used by children that are going through either the fostering or adoption process

The Prince’s Trust Awards

Cardinal Maritime Group were delighted to sponsor the Rising Star Award at The Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards last night.

The event took place at St George’s Hall in Liverpool and brought together supporters, staff, volunteers, Trust-supported young people and other members of The Prince’s Trust community.

The Rising Star Award recognises young people who despite having faced substantial personal obstacles are in sustainable employment as a result of a Prince’s Trust programme.

Ryan Smith won the award having overcome bullying, caring for his disabled father and developing anger issues when he could no longer cope. His anxiety affected his confidence and health but The Prince’s Trust Team programme helped Ryan find his strengths and let his confidence follow. Ryan now works as a cameraman for a local housing association.

Ryan was delighted to win the award which was presented by our Financial Director Liam McGonagle.
