Forward Assist 2014 'Veterans Debate Project' sponsored by Blu Sky Accountants
We are delighted to report that the 2014 'Veterans Debate Project' will be sponsored by Blu Sky Accountants, a local firm based in North Shields. This is the second year in a row that the firm have stepped forward to sponsor this innovative event that teaches veterans communication skills whilst giving them a greater understanding of the democratic process and local politics. The project incorporates training from Daniel Wood (Parliamentary Outreach Team) and a visit to the Houses of Parliament to see a real time Parliamentary Debate. Last year, Forward Assist veteran Wayne Bell won the debate and went on to give a fantastic summing up speech at the House of Lords in December 2013. Blu Sky Chief Executive Dave Gibson is pictured handing over the cheque to CEO Tony Wright earlier in the week.
