FORMULA ONE team boss Ross Brawn found time in his international travel schedule to help build confidence in some south Northants residents.

Last week Mr Brawn presented 11 young people with certificates after completing the Move-in4ward Life Skills course run by South Northants Homes, funded by a £22,000 grant from the Governments Adult and Community Learning Fund. The course gave people everyday skills to improve their self esteem, computer skills and health prospects.

During the presentation Mr Brawn spoke about his own journey to success and encouraged them to achieve their aims.

Afterwards he said: “Despite not having had the easiest start, these young people were all motivated to make a positive change to their lives and understood the importance of having the right skills to achieve this.”
