RARE THAT IT IS for Taking Stock to champion a worthwhile cause, on this occasion at least such efforts have proved worthwhile.
Last September, TS highlighted the work of charity Soldier On, which was trying to help one-time soldier Stephen Gillespie forge a new career in accountancy.
Seriously injured during a tour of duty in the Sangin district of Helmand, Afghanistan, Stephen needed the help of the profession to start an accountancy apprenticeship.
TS happily reports that Gillespie has since won an 18 month business and administration NVQ level three apprenticeship with CPA Associates in Wigan.
We wish him all the best.
