The Pioneer Centre, Shropshire

The generous funding from The James Beattie Charitable Trust enables us to provide young people with experiences that will last so many of them a lifetime.

The young people experience the full range of emotions that makes the Pioneer Centre such a great place for learning and challenge to occur. Nothing beats the resounding thunderous chorus of ‘Thank You’s’ echoing in the dining hall, the terrifying and triumphant screams throughout the activities or the watery eyes of sadness of the many unwilling to depart as they walk past reception. One thing is sure, the preparation for those young people’s future has taken a step forward.

Thank you to the Trustees for allowing us to provide these life-changing oopportunities.
