Last week we were presented with a cheque for £1,500 from Leadership Gateway Ltd in support of the WIRE project. The community safety project works with ex-offenders offering them two-week mentored work placements with local businesses. 65% of those completing a work placement go on to full-time paid employment or training.
John Williams the chairman and director of Leadership Gateway said "Leadership Gateway Ltd represents 10 successful businesses across the East Midlands who give annually to a specific charity. This year we are very pleased to support and be associated with such a worthy project as WIRE and wish you every success in the coming years."
