Progress 6 is pleased to report that one of the original volunteers at the Progress cafe at Cougar Park has subsequently moved into full time employment within the hospitality industry.
Part of the volunteer’s success in attaining the position was attributed to their current volunteering and up-to-date experience within this sector at Cougar Park.
Project 6 is now completely and professionally run by volunteers and Project 6 service users at each match day and is going from strength to strength.
Said volunteer manager, Donna Siberry: “They are a credit to themselves but crucially they instill hope to people who are presently trying to make positive changes that not only is recovery possible but opportunities working within the community are also attainable.
“We are grateful to Your Sporting Chance and Keighley Cougars for giving us this opportunity and hope that it will take a crucial role in promoting the skills and abilities of individuals in recovery within the district and beyond, thus supporting them in securing real pathways into employment.”
