Team Focus Raises Money For St Petroc’s!

Everyone at Focus Technology would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated to our Just Giving page – many of you will know that last Thursday we took part in the Eden Project’s Big Charity Sleep Out, we made our own bread, was entertained by the Kernow King – before settling down on a piece of cardboard and ultimately succumbing to the cold, and it was cold….and damp! It was not very nice, but that is what homeless individuals throughout Cornwall face day in, day out – many of them are homeless by no fault of their own. The St Petroc’s Society provide vital services to homeless people throughout Cornwall, and we are pleased to say that we have raised over £350 so far, and are expected to receive more donations yet! Our Just Giving page is still up and active – if you would like to help Focus and St Petroc’s, you can do so by visiting Focus Charity Sleep Out

Cornwall’s Future Economy – Young People’s Consultation

Focus’s MD Andrew Davenport recently took part in the Cornwall’s Future Economy – Young People’s Consultation. The event which was organised by the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership took place at the iconic Eden Project, and saw 40 students – all from various schools within Cornwall, come together to share what they thought a successful Cornwall might look like in the future, and what they believe a better Cornwall could look like – i.e. expansion on career sectors, better wages and diversity of jobs available in Cornwall.

7 different businesses (including Focus Technology Europe Ltd) took to the mic to speak to the students about what was great about being a local business – and also what challenges they face.

Andrew Davenport had this to say following the event – “it was really refreshing to see so many young people care so passionately about the Cornish economy and their future careers, their presentations were fantastic – we have many, many talented young people here in Cornwall who can, and will make a difference”.
