CV-Library announces Centrepoint as its chosen charity partner for 2019

CV-Library has chosen its charitable partner for the year as Centrepoint, the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity. The charity is committed to giving young homeless people a future and the partnership will see the CV-Library team commit to raising thousands of pounds for this important cause, through a number of fundraising activities. CV-Library will provide the organisation with vital funds which will in turn aid Centrepoint and its partners in continuing to directly support over 10,000 young homeless people. Through this partnership, CV-Library hopes to raise awareness for this incredible charity in order to fulfil a common goal; providing young people with the opportunity to find a career and helping those in need.
