Hello, my name is Mandy and I am a volunteer for Skidz. Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
My aim is to walk along the River Thames. I will be starting at Old Windsor Lock and back to Henley along the Thames Path. I hope to start the walk at 6.30 am and arrive back at Henley about 4-5pm.
Lets just hope its not flooded.
SKIDZ – what is that?
A Motor Project that gives young people a chance to gain vocational skills in motor mechanics in an adult work-style environment so that they have a better chance of finding employment.
Where is SKIDZ?
At present it is in rented workshops in High Wycombe, Reading and Hillingdon.
Who do we work with?
Young people aged 13 to 16+ years come to us to learn car mechanics; many enroll on a 2-year course with a Level 1 qualification, whilst others complete a Basic Skills Course. All learn Health and Safety in the workplace. Since SKIDZ opened in 1998 over 7,850 young people have gained skills that are transferable to the world of work, giving them life and vocational skills as well as educational attainment. Quite a high number have gained apprenticeships, some with high class dealerships such as BMW, Porsche, Volvo to name but three. Think how many more we can help if we extend our provision!
If you have a company then just donate as much as you can afford and you too can help change lives. All donation small or large will gratefully received but especially the LARGE ones! Skidz is a fantastic charity and they need our help.
