On 24 January Mr Andrew Horncastle was invited to meet HRH Prince Charles when the prince visited Barnsley College. The W A Horncastle Charitable Trust has been supporting the work of the Prince’s Trust in Hull to help young people. Particularly in bringing about the reintroduction to the city of the PT Enterprise Programme. This programme is designed to give young people an introduction to self-employment and support them in establishing a business.
In collaboration with Kingston Upon Hull City Council eighty three young people attended the new programme up to April 2012 and a further programme is underway now supported also by a grant from the European Regional Development Fund.
The W A Horncastle Charitable Trust is pleased to have been able to help get things off the ground and hopes that many young people who have faced difficult and challenging circumstances will benefit and experience the opportunity of successful self employment.
