Raising sky-high aspirations for young people in Grimsby

The Young People’s Development Group had the opportunity to see the ‘horizon’ from a different angle last night, thanks to Lincolnshire Gliding Club. Organised by Katharine York, our team (including male members) were invited to take part in a three-session ‘High Flying Girls’ gliding course aimed to encourage more women into this exciting sport.

The team are learning about the science behind gliding, as well as careers in engineering through the thrill of flight. Gliding offers fantastic opportunities for developing transferable skills in communication, team work, decision-making, safe working and in personal confidence. And, above all – it is a whole lot of fun.

Thank you to Katharine York and Lincolnshire Gliding Club for this fantastic opportunity.
