Vaughan has been instrumental in the development of Project Blyth for Greenpower Education Trust in the Humber Region. This will see 33 high schools teams and 10 NEET teams taking part in a race day in Hull in the summer of 2017, in electric cars they have designed and built themselves. Well over 1,000 young people aged 11-25 will benefit from the project in a variety of ways.
Entrepreneurship is an integral part of the project, with young people required to make a business case for local companies to support their entry both for financing their team, and receiving mentoring and workplace inspiration throughout.
Without Vaughan’s enthusiasm and passion for supporting the project in the Humber region, it would not have been possible to create the overwhelming support for Project Blyth that we’re seeing today, and so is a deserving winner of this prestigious Award. Congratulations Vaughan!
