Hatfield woman can work for her charity of choice
A HATFIELD woman was one of 500 to win an apprenticeship at the charity of her choice.
Eleanor Gouldthorpe has been chosen from more than 1,100 applicants to win a place on the Vodafone Foundation’s 2009 World of Difference UK Programme.
The 22-year-old will spend two months working for Article 25, an organisation that works to provide properly designed and built buildings where they are needed to help develop a route out of poverty or rebuild in post-disaster areas around the world.
The Holme Road woman, who will begin her placement this month, said: “I was really surprised and very happy to find I had won a place with World of Difference.
“I love Article 25’s work and am really looking forward to working with the fundraising team.”
