Interested in some free leadership training?

You have no doubt heard about the Small Business Leadership Programme, which is funded through the government via the Small Business Charter.

It aims to build managers’ and directors’ leadership skills so that their firms are more resilient and able to survive and thrive post-lockdown.

Helping to build a dream bedroom for Joshua

Joshua Jessop is a wonderful young man. Each day, the Year 7 student comes to Richmond School with a smile on his face, enjoys being with his friends and gives 100% to his lessons.  His enthusiasm and determination are tremendous and an inspiration to us all, given that Joshua suffers with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), a life-limiting genetic muscle-wasting condition, for which there is no cure.

Over time, Joshua’s health will deteriorate and he will increasingly become more reliant on others and machines to do everything for him.  To help Joshua be as independent for as long as possible, his parents are hoping to create a ground-floor, wheelchair-accessible, adapted bedroom and bathroom which is going to cost £60,000.
