This is the second year that we have supported Richard Taunton College and 3 students Aysha, Lorna and Valaria were selected to take part from 12 applicants.  Lorna and Aysha joined us at a recent meeting, along with Donna- Marie Janson from Taunton’s staff, to tell us about the benefits they gained from attending.  They both felt more confident and what they learned would equip them well as they moved onto University and then into their chosen careers
