I’ve been truly privileged to work with some of the most talented, inspiring and hard working people in the industry and it’s thanks to them that Exposure is the success that it is today.
“Last Thursday marked twenty years in the business and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than to share our success not only with friends, but with the wonderful and brave kids of SE1 United.”

To have raised £29,500 so far for SE1 United is a fantastic achievement and it will go a long way to helping London’s vulnerable young people.
