St Stephen’s takes a keen interest in local activity, becoming involved in causes close to the heart of our community.
In September of this year, we took part in the Alzheimer Society’s Memory Walk to help raise awareness of dementia; an illness that affects both the people who have it, but also the relatives whose support they rely on. The walk was open to all and involved walking over the Humber Bridge, the longest bridge in the world that can be crossed by foot or bicycle. It was a huge success, and we raised vital funds for families living with the disease.
Another local event we hosted was the The Young Enterprise Trade Fair. Young entrepreneurs were invited to sell their produce alongside high-street stores on site - the aim was to give the young people a feel for the industry, and develop the skills they will need in the workplace. As well as sourcing or producing the product, the students also learnt valuable business and marketing skills as part of the programme, allowing them to set up their own company for a year.
Here at St Stephen’s, we are pleased to be involved in an event that offers experience and encouragement to our younger generations.
