With a background in further education and skills sector, Richard is also an active member of the Scouts and is responsible for training and development at a national level. Inspired by this new energy and creativity, the team are planning a range of events and fundraising opportunities alongside the weekly group activities that are continuing to grow in regular members. SAGE are also delighted to continue their partnership with Sheffield based company and Chamber of Commerce member, True North Brew Co.
