Pilotlight has collaborated with more than 180 distinguished UK enterprises to enhance their Corporate Social Responsibility goals and Learning and Development aspirations. Tesco is one of these enterprises.

David Millington, Head of Future Payments at Tesco Bank, and has been a Pilotlighter on Pilotlight 360. We caught up with him to hear more about his experience:

Pilotlight’s role connecting charities to skills within the private sector, bringing together different perspectives and skillsets to help build capacity and sustainability, is invaluable. I really enjoy being a Pilotlighter and am constantly learning from the charities and my fellow Pilotlighters.

I’ve been surprised by how much I’ve learnt and how much I've been influenced by the charities I’ve worked with. It’s a humbling experience to work closely with exceptional people who care passionately about their communities, and are providing much needed help and support to people in need. I’m pretty sure that I’ve learnt more from the charities I’ve met through Pilotlight than the charities have from me!

It’s incredibly inspiring, and has made me more determined to make a greater contribution to society and my community. I became a trustee of Edinburgh based charity Fresh Start, who tackle homelessness by helping people turn a house into a home, after discovering them through Pilotlight. I was constantly amazed by the determination, passion and empathy of everybody at Fresh Start to make a difference in people’s lives, so I wanted to get involved further.
