Tevin Tobun discusses Platebox with Prince Charles at Powerlist reception
This week, Tobun alongside other notable awardees – Baroness Amos, David Harewood and Kwame Kwei Armah to name a few – were invited to attend a Powerlist reception hosted by The Prince of Wales at Clarence House.
During the reception at Clarence House, The Prince of Wales made a keynote speech addressing attendees, networked with guests and spent some time speaking with Tobun about GV Group and his Tobun Foundation.
Tobun shared how GV Group subsidiary company Platebox, supported Bidfood to deliver over 350,000 food parcels to clinically vulnerable people who needed to shield during COVID enforced lockdowns. Prince Charles also seemed surprised to know that Platebox safely delivers over 10 million lunches to school children across the UK annually.
The Powerlist celebrates 100 of the U’s most influential people of African, African Caribbean and African-American heritage, who act as a role model for young people.
Now in its 16th year, the network honours people across a wide range of industries including business, science, technology and the arts.
