Kathy Woodward buttonholes the Prime Ministerback to list
24 July 2012
When David Cameron recently visited Windrush Printers in Whitney to celebrate their 40th anniversary, he met with BPIF's chief executive, Kathy Woodward, who presented him with a Hortipack Thyme plant.
The specially designed pack combined the themes of connecting people with plants and ‘Thyme for action’ as part of a programme to promote employability for young people.
Kathy Woodward said, "This is one step on our journey to help 1 million unemployed young people into work, and we are particularly pleased to showcase the initiative from Accuro, the Essex based charity dedicated to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities and their families."
The charity is funding a horticultural vocational training programme which is a route into employment for people who often have real difficulty in finding meaningful employment. The Prime Minister was very supportive of both Accuro's initiative and BPIF's programme, and promised to add the plant to his collection of herbs in the garden at Number 10.
