Young businessman goes back to college
A RISING entrepreneur returned to college to inspire other students.
David Humpston, who attended the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy at Amersham and Wycombe College, Stanley Hill, spoke on Monday last week.
Mr Humpston won the academy’s national entrepreneur of the year in July, for which he received £5,000 and a trophy.
He said: “My business idea is called Viewpoint Videos, it’s an experiential online video company that allows customers at experience centres to feature in their own action movie-style point of view video, which they can instantly relive online.”
The 19-year-old, who lives in Aylesbury, added: “The talk went well and it was fun to meet the new teachers. The money I won has been a huge help, I am starting to work on branding and sales. It was a huge motivation to win the award.” A RECRUITMENT drive is taking place to get more people to volunteer to help older and vulnerable people in Bucks.
Community Impact Bucks’ Volunteer Hub is running a campaign this month to recruit volunteer ‘befrienders’ for organisations.
Results of a recent survey show more than 200 befrienders are needed in the county to enable charities to cater for current demand.
The charity says volunteers can help fill the gap needed when friends or family of the vulnerable people are absent.
About one million older and vulnerable people in the UK regularly go an entire month without
