The Longmores Charitable Foundation has awarded a grant of £2,000 to Peace Child to help young people in Hertford and Harlow.

The Longmores Charitable Foundation, which was established in 2016, fundraises with the aim to help worthy local causes; particularly smaller and less well-known causes that are often in greater need of financial support than many of the established national charities.

This June, the trustee of the Foundation have made a grant award of £2,000 to Peace Child who share a similar objective to help people.  The funding will be used to train 200 young people in Hertford and 200 young people in Harlow.  The training will help transform the lives of local teenagers by giving them the skills and self-confidence to become employable.  It aims to stop them from entering a vicious circle of low self-esteem, unemployment and poverty.

Rachael Spalton, a trustee of the Longmores Charitable Foundation said, “we are pleased to offer something towards enabling young people to develop their confidence and skills to help them increase their chances of employment”.
