Rachel saves the day

Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end

Apprentice plasterer Rachel

New apprentice plasterer Rachel Howarth has had her fair share of the limelight since joining Emanuel Whittaker’s just two months ago.  After featuring on Jeremy Paxman’s Newsnight highlighting the issues of worklessness amongst young people, she received an apprentice award from Salix Homes.

But Rachel didn’t bargain on being thrown under the spotlight again when she discovered an elderly gentleman collapsed in the street close to her site at Stoney Knoll.

Rachel was quick to the rescue, calling for an ambulance and alerting her site manager to give first aid.
