In March 2019, we hosted our first ever Careers Palace for 171 children from 21 of our partner primary schools. Designed to excite and inspire children about the world of work, we showcased careers from a wide range of industries and businesses in a fun and engaging way. We were so grateful for the support from all the contributing organisations, including Advanced Medical Solutions, Regatta, Essar, Virgin Money, Lush, Sanctuary Housing, Vets4Pets, Therapy Dogs Nationwide, the Bake King Ben Cullen, Escape the Van, Matthew O’Brien, Dai Owen, Tablet Academy and Skill Supply, not to mention Cheshire Fire Service, Northwest Ambulance Service and Cheshire Police. It was a truly unique event and one which we will all remember for many years to come. The film highlights what was involved and shows the children’s huge excitement and enthusiasm for everything they got to experience.
The event was made possible through the generous support of Greif Packaging Charitable Trust, Chester Municipal Charities and Sanctuary Housing’s Grand Ideas Fund. Together with all our partners, we are continuing to develop the children’s ambitions and ambitions expressed at the Careers Palace, exploring the skills and knowledge that they need to acquire in order to achieve their true potential as adults.
