Meg Hillier, MP for South Hackney visited the Golden Co on October 12th and took part in a busy production day led by Golden Co young people.
Ife and Lakshmi, representatives of this year’s and last year’s Golden Cohort, shared trade secrets with Ms Hillier, who watched as they led corporate volunteers through a production run. Ms Hillier, who is preparing to launch an initiative to help young people in Hackney within city and digital organisations, was impressed by the work carried out by the Golden Co, and their luxurious range of natural cosmetics.
Meg Hillier said: “This amazing organisation is taking Hackney young people on a journey from sometimes challenging starts to success in business or the workplace. It shows what can be done when committed individuals work together and focus on the positive side of human nature.
“And the products they make are well worth having in their own right.”
