Article by Janice Davies – Futureworks

Futureworks Engagement Learners wth John and Peter from Gwylan and Janice, visited Swansea on December 14th 2017. A buffet lunch had been arranged at Tinos Restaurant and bar, which was an amazing experience for all concerned. Tino the owner of the Restaurant, came to speak to learners about her Entrepreneurship and starting her own business. Tino had previously completed her degree in Aeronautical Engineering. Learners were Inspired by Tino’s story, and took notice when she stated:

“Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something… because You CAN!!”

Cardigan students asked Tino if it would be possible to pack up the excess food left from the buffet. Tino was thrilled to provide boxes for this. Janice from Futureworks and Peter from Gwylan handed out boxes from the learners to homeless adults in Swansea city centre – who were thrilled and thanked the students for their generosity.

University of Swansea visit

All proceeded to the University of Swansea, where a visit had been arranged to the Egyptology department. Students were awed at the campus, its facilities, and proximity to town.

Students were thrilled at the Egypt centre and were fascinated by displays and great delight was had by all learners, and was quite inspirational too… some asked…

“What would I have to do to come and study Egyptology here!!!!”
