OWN IT Celebrating 15 Years

North East Charity OWN IT are celebrating their 15th birthday on Friday 30th November at the CastleGate on Melbourne Street. Alan Reed Art will be joining in with the Charity auction by donating a framed limited edition print to help this North East based charity.

Established in 1997 with the work of Richard Davies MBE at Walbottle Campus OWN IT is a unique work experience programme for 14 – 16 year olds who are recommended to us by senior members of school staff.

We ask each student “If you could leave school on Friday and start work on Monday, what is it more than anything else in the world that you want to do?”

By focusing on the first choice of each student we aim to make their dreams come true and want to take them seriously.

Paralympic Gold Medalist Stephen Miller will be the guest speaker for what promises to be an entertaining evening. If you would like to join me for the evening please call me on 01661 871 800 or 0771 874 1546. Alternatively to can RSVP to 15yearsevent@ownit-limited.org

Further details about the event can be seen on the invitation.
