It’s a privilege to witness people explore their abilities and cultivate the courage to pursue their dreams.
Our charity night was held in honour of Nathaniel Brown. Nathaniel was tragically murdered in 2012, aged 16. The mission is for participants if they chose to accept it – leave your adult selves at the door and discover your inner kid! Come and see what they got up to.
Yep, it’s fair to say their competitive spirits came out. They didn’t always play fairly, and they did not like sharing. As we anticipated, the real kids behaved better than the adults! It was an honour to celebrate Nathaniel’s life rather than the circumstances of his death. To top it off, we raised £500 for XLP a youth charity committed to creating positive futures for young people.

Leila Thomas, CEO of Urban Synergy, a mentoring charity, asked Dawn to participate in their Ready4Work day on 23 March 2020 at Conisborough College to help year ten students practice their interview skills.
Alongside over 100 role models, Dawn interviewed several students throughout the day, listening to their aspirations, coaching them on interview skills and encouraging them to aim high.
Urban Synergy pulled out the stops to welcome and host the role models. The school dinner triggered good memories– who doesn’t like cake and custard!
