Goldings honoured for helping young entrepreneurs

Goldings was the surprise recipient of an award at a ceremony held to celebrate the achievements of a group of young entrepreneurs.

A total of 12 young people received awards for their success in Hull City Council’s Making Changes for Careers (MC4C) project, with many more also recognised for taking part in the scheme which provides people with the skills, information and guidance to explore self-employment.

The project, part-financed by the European Union’s European Social Fund and supported by the Youth Employment Initiative, saw young people launch businesses ranging from gardening and window cleaning to teaching people about reptiles, and the awards event also featured a mini-trade fair showcasing the products and services.

But after the presentations to the entrepreneurs of the future, MC4C called on Chamber Immediate Past President Phil Ascough to present a special award to Vic Golding, Managing Director of Golding Computer Services, and Di Garbera, the company’s General Manager.

Goldings dates back to 1982 and specialises in providing computerised accounts training for businesses of all sizes and in all sectors, often securing funding to cover the cost. Vic and Di are long term supporters of initiatives to help young entrepreneurs in Hull and played a key part with MC4C in ensuring a good understanding of accounts and finance.

Mark Jones MBE, Hull City Council’s Director of Regeneration, said: “Di and Vic understand that financial literacy is something that young people often find daunting, and they have been an invaluable asset to the MC4C programme. Through their supportive nature and wealth of knowledge they showed the dedication, patience and passion to help our young people not only to gain an accredited qualification but to actually understand the world of business finance, an attribute that is paramount to the success of any start up business.”
