Enterprise for Education in plea

Acting on last year's call to action from Chamber President Liz Fothergill in the Dare to Dream slot - outlining her dream for businesses in the city to help foster the development of young people in Derby - Enterprise for Education (E4E) took centre stage at our Annual Business Event last week to talk about what the initiative has achieved thus far.

Mike Copestake, Partner at Freeths LLP and chairman at Enterprise for Education, told the audience that E4E Derby has already gained support from around 120 business professionals and leaders to mentor young people in Derby schools.

Mike explained that young people often just need an extra bit of motivation, support or knowledge to help them along the way - the best people to help are those in business and he put out a call for more volunteers.
