Long – term supporter and specialist consultancy, Newton approached us about being their partner for a team volunteering day on 18th December. With Covid restrictions, we knew we couldn’t easily send large numbers of their people into schools and colleges, so we took a different approach.
We’ve set the Newton team a range of challenges for their volunteering day, including developing workshops on money management and teamworking for young people, and brainstorming fundraising activities for 2021.
Newton founder, Andrew Hawes says: “Newton is a long-term supporter of Working Options in Education. Our volunteering day in partnership with them is a great way for our team to use their skills to help young people at a time when youth employment prospects are so adversely affected and they need support to prepare for their futures more than ever.”
We’re really grateful for Newton’s ongoing support and very excited to see what their teams come up with on December 18th!
