Lawyer’s Gold Award crowns success for young entrepreneurs

Commitment to supporting young entrepreneurs across the Three Counties was rewarded when lawyer Joanne Hodgetts from Harrison Clark Rickerbys received a gold award for outstanding services to Young Enterprise at the charity’s county finals.

Aimed at senior school pupils, Young Enterprise’s Company Programme supports them to set up and run their own company, from deciding on the name and product to creating a business plan, managing the company finances and selling to the public at trade fairs.

Joanne said: “I am very honoured to have received the award – for me, the real success is to see so many young people venturing into business for the first time and learning from every step they take on their journey, whether they win awards or not.”
