We now have a team of awesome women ready to meet their Little Sister at Blessed Edward Jones Catholic School in Rhyl this month. Training took place in Ruthin last weekend and the team include a bank manager, NHS executives, entrepreneurs, public sector professionals, a University lecturer, Communications Officer at Grosvenor Estate, several health and beauty professionals and more. This will be our first programme in North Wales but we hope it will encourage other schools to get involved as we know local girls need support and positive role models. We will keep you posted on our progress.
