We are delighted to announce that funds raised at this year's The Production Guild of Great Britain Awards totalled a fantastic £14,000 for MAMA Youth Project.
MAMA Youth Project, works to equip young people aged 18-25 with the skills and experience to secure long-term, fulfilling employment in the TV and media industry, with particular focus on young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and those with limited educational or employment opportunities.
Bob Clarke, CEO MAMA Youth Project said "We are extremely grateful for this support from The Production Guild of Great Britain Awards and honoured to be recognised by an organisation with the prestige and drive for change in the industry as The Production Guild of Great Britain. We admire the ways in which PGGB is adapting to improve representation through their Diversity and Inclusion Action (DIAG) Group. This aligns with MAMA Youth Project's mission to positively impact the media by providing opportunities to young people from under-represented and challenging backgrounds through the provision of skills training and on-going career support. I would like to express both my thanks and optimism for continuing this mutually beneficial relationship long into the future."
Lyndsay Duthie, CEO PGGB said “We are very proud to be able to support MAMA Youth Project and are in complete awe of their work. MAMA Youth are a great exemplar of action in practice and to see the results of their alumni is so inspiring. We are delighted to work closely with Bob and his team and extend our reach of PGGB’s own DIAG group work too. Here’s to celebrating more success stories as MAMA Youth graduates go into industry and make a difference.”
Thank you everyone who donated prizes for the evening and made bids. Your support has been incredible.
