Five new beneficiaries – May 2016!

It’s been a busy couple of months at ‘Go Make It Happen’. We’ve appointed five new beneficiaries who are embarking on a variety of tourism-profession experiences, awarded a prize to this year’s youngest London Blue Badge Tourist Guide, and started to train our GMIH team of six young (and one very old!) runners for the London Vitality 10K in July 2016. See the pictures below…

Jade Waplington is training to be a holiday rep for TUI travel and hopes to be working overseas regularly in the coming years. Emily Edell, Katie Wignall and Catherine Raggett are this year’s London Blue Badge Tourist Guide trainees, and represent our fifth year of supporting young people on this rigorous training course. Vikki Sanderson is going to Honduras to work on a community project focussing on promoting eco-tourism and how this can generate a livelihood and income for young Hondurans.

Hi I am Keith. Sam was my son and together with close friends and family we set up 'Go Make It Happen!' in Sam's memory and with his spirit running through it. The aim is to help young people to get involved in the tourism profession. I work partly in tourism (as a London Blue Badge Tourist Guide) and partly in English Language Teaching (writing materials, running training courses overseas, and inspecting language schools in the UK for the British Council).
