ICE member Daniel Fitzgerald has been named ‘Social Entrepreneur of the Year’ at the SWECED EPIC awards. The award ceremony will took place at the Vale Hotel last week.
“When I left university I wanted to follow the path of being a musician or music teacher, but the support simply wasn’t there. I want to share my knowledge and enthusiasm for doing what I love -what makes me happy- with others; and there’s a gap for people to help you do what you want to. I’m not in this to make millions -I’m in it to make sure I can pay the bills, help others, but ultimately to do something I love doing. I would take minimum wage doing this over £30k working in a bank any day of the week.”
RecRock have recently been given funding from Job Centre Plus to work with 60 unemployed volunteers in a year to improve their skills, confidence and self esteem and will be launching their summer school in May.
