RBS, Tesco, Superdrug sign up for Prince’s Trust

The Royal Bank of Scotland Group (RBS) has signed up as lead sponsor for The Prince’s Trust’s 30th birthday celebrations next month, while Tesco and Superdrug have also signed up as major retail partners for the event.

RBS is long-term partner of the trust, but has extended its support to be lead sponsor for this event. Superdrug has signed up to support the charitable body for four years.

RBS will sponsor the celebrations on May 20, which aim to raise both awareness and cash to support the Prince’s Trust. Events include a concert at the Tower of London and a live studio show, both of which will feature on ITV1 on Saturday May 20. The Prince of Wales, Prince William and Prince Harry will also be giving their first joint television interview with Ant and Dec to mark the occasion.

Tesco, as the event’s main retail partner, will sell 3-D glasses in its stores across the UK. This is the first time the retailer has teamed up with the trust. Superdrug is selling a bag in its stores from May and all profits will go to the charity. The bag has been designed by Dead on Arrival, a fashion business supported by the charity.
