We are excited to be involved with the University of Northampton and to be giving two local students a little help to achieve their dreams. Amber Rawlins studying fashion textiles and Billy Little studying advertising and digital marketing are the first lucky recipients of our scholarship, which provides £9,000 over three years to help undergraduates with their studies. Luke Allebone, manager at Michael Jones Jeweller, said: “Many budding entrepreneurs have been discouraged from achieving their potential due to life not handing them a helpful start on the personal or business ladder. We wanted to offer them that chance and particularly local students, who would possibly return to operate in Northamptonshire. The more we put back into the town the better it will grow. “At Michael Jones Jeweller we believe that helping people achieve their dreams is a better accomplishment than any short-lived financial reward. We hope the students that we support to achieve those dreams understand this philosophy, and that they themselves will promote these beliefs as they develop through life.” We would like to wish Amber and Billy all the best with their studies.
