HRH The Prince of Wales visits Brixton

In June 2012, HRH The Prince of Wales, visited two projects in south London which have been helped by Will Popham, a Business Connector seconded from BT to work in Lambeth during the pilot project.

The Prince toured Brick Box, a community arts organisation in Brixton, and the Oval cricket ground, which is employing more than 100 local people thanks to the efforts of Mr Popham.

Stephen Howard, BITC's Chief Executive said on the day:

"With youth unemployment at over one million and one in seven shops on UK High Streets standing empty, it is vital to leverage private sector support to increase enterprise, employment and support education in the UK.

"Business Connectors has already proved to be an extremely successful way to make this happen."
