She told us, “We have supported local education for over sixteen years and have a keen interest in using this platform to raise the aspirations and outcomes of our young people in Doncaster and beyond. We invest a lot of personal time to achieve this and there is great encouragement in watching our young people thrive. The Doncaster Council’s aims overlap with what we want to achieve, and we will contribute wherever we can to help and support their goal. It’s nice to see that everyone we speak to recognise the value in our efforts, it spurs us on. This year we are the first company in England to sponsor a full year 9 group of students at our local secondary school through their Duke of Edinburgh bonze award; this will enable them to gain vital life skills that can be transferred into preparing them for world of work”.
