Key Fund - Light Water Valley Day arranged by the Study Programme Students!

Members of our staff receive training to become Key Fund Facilitators and to be able to tap into funding through the Key Fund Scheme.
The funding provides investments to social enterprises based or working in the North East of England. 
Students will put together a proposal which includes all costings etc showing all their findings and searches used.  The students then face a panel from Key Fund and pitch their idea to be able to tap into funding and present their proposal in hope they will receive funding.
Our students this year chose to visit to Light Water Valley!  They gathered total numbers, costings of entrance, bus hire, food and refreshments etc and pitched their idea to the Key Fund Board.
The funding was approved and the students had a fantastic time!
See below for some photos from their day!
