They say give a man a fish and he eats for a day. But teach a man to fish and he may well be able to eat forever. This is the philosophy which, in a way, is being adopted by Hereward Media. There is a high-tech skills shortage across the UK, and there are positions to be filled, giving those who have been left behind new hope, new belief, and a new direction.
There are three types of people we need to be involved in the Hereward Media project.
First there are SPONSORS/DONORS - who will supply the finance, infrastructure and equipment to achieve our charitable objectives.
Then there are the BENEFICIARIES - those who will take part in our training and create programmes as an ancillary function of improving their skills.
Finally, there are our VIEWERS - those people who will watch the carefully crafted results of our training programmes.
You could take part via any or all of these roles. What you will get from your involvement is a very real sense of achievement, improving the lives of both yourself and others, as we bring together our communities within the Peterborough and Fenlands conurbations. It really is "the station you can really call your own".
