HOT Moves Funds School Children’s Prince William Award Scheme

Year 5 children at Sacred Heart School are completing the SkillForce Junior Prince’s Award again this year, thanks to local company, HOT Moves of Henley who are sponsoring it.

The national Award was launched in 2014 and Sacred Heart School was the first school in Henley to launch the scheme last year.

Backed by HRH The Duke of Cambridge, the programme equips children and young people with the skills they need to succeed in education, life and future employment. The programme includes first aid, team building games and camping out at the school. SkillForce is a national education charity dedicated to helping young people flourish through motivational mentoring and proven programmes tailored to students’ needs.

HRH The Duke of Cambridge is SkillForce’s Royal Patron and has given the charity the only two awards in his name. They are the SkillForce Junior Prince’s Award and the SkillForce Prince’s Award.

SkillForce draws on the skills of predominantly ex-Services personnel who now wish to serve their community, and inspire young people to succeed. Instructors deliver motivational mentoring and proven education programmes which develop self-confidence, resilience and character to improve pupil attendance, behaviour, aspirations and achievement.

Gez Davies, Sacred Heart Headteacher said, “Skillforce has transformed the Year 5 curriculum and the experiences of our children. We are deeply thankful to Hugo and his company Hot Moves removals for the generous sponsorship he is providing. This has enabled us to continue to deliver this exciting project that is creating future leaders of Henley.”

Hugo Gentilli, owner of HOT Moves said, “For every home move we do in the months of June, July and August we will donating £50 to the school.  It’s a real pleasure to work with a local school and for a great cause.  The more local businesses get involved, the better.  Hopefully this will lead to more local community support.”
