Comic Relief in conjunction with Leeds Community Foundation donated £1000 to fund the placement of eleven young people and 4 mentors. This money pays their expenses and allows them to attend 3 days each week for 7 weeks over the summer holidays.
Amongst this group are several 16 -18 year olds who have various career aspirations.
Jessica Britton - Midwive
Alex Parrot - Doctor
Adele Horner - Caring Profession
Sophie Wariner - Caring Profession
Daniel Wariner - Undertaker
Each student is required to produce a portfolio detailing their daily tasks and special projects.
For example Jessica and Alex are undertaking a risk assement on the various areas of the garden. It is hoped that the skills learned here will be beneficial in their chosen professions
