Forging a new future

Herefordshire Community Foundation (HCF) has helped a single mother to forge a new career path by supporting her studies.

She applied for help to enable her to start the Blacksmithing and Metalwork Level 2 course at Herefordshire & Ludlow  College.

“Once again I cannot thank you enough. I am on a steep learning curve and am loving every moment of it. After 20 years of wanting this, I am quite literally living the dream. And I’ve also made some new friends. Thank you all so much.”
