Cathryn Hindle spoke at our Lunch meeting on Monday and started by giving us a brief resume of her family life in South Africa and later in the UK, at which time she was working in human resources for multinational companies like BA and BASF. When based in Cambridge (and later London & Southampton) the emphasis of her work changed to small technology companies.
She then began her talk about THE GR@ND which is based in King Street, Gravesend. There she works with their “Gifted Young Gravesham” programme to help build up young people’s confidence. For School, College and University leavers, assistance with the technicalities of current day CV’s, job applications and tips for interviews is her main objective but bringing out youngsters’ hidden social and arts potential is also high on her agenda.
For ten years GYG (Gifted Young Gravesham) have worked with professionals to present a premier event at the Woodville Halls, Gravesend. This year, the show is on the 9th Nov @ 19:00 and the cast will all be from Gravesend and between the ages of 11 and 19.
Tickets cost £7.00 per person and can be found at https://www.thegrand.org.uk/young-people/gifted-young-gravesham/
Cathryn was asked if she could find out if there was anything that our club and it members could do to help with this project and other activities at THE GR@ND. She was thanked by our President Tony Muckley for taking the time to talk to us.
