Mount Carmel had a visit from Hyndburn MP Sara Britcliffe along with Tony Grimshaw OBE who is a Director of What More UK Ltd. (WHAM)

The visit was arranged as part of a current initiative to raise aspirations to work and live locally.

Tony Grimshaw introduced the pupils to his company and explained the many and varied opportunities offered by his and other companies in the area.

Sara held a question and answer session to discover what the youth of the area really want and advise was offered on opportunities for pupils to look for work locally. Sara informed the pupils that a job fair is due to be held soon.

He then kindly held a draw for a £50 cash gift to one of the pupils in attendance and offered products manufactured by What More to the pupils to take home to their families.

Thank you to Murray Dawson for arranging this as part of the Amazing Accrington initiative.
