Learner donates defibrillator to Ashorne Hill
On Thursday 30th November, Sophie Owen a JLR employee and learner on Ashorne Hill’s graduate training programme, kindly donated a defibrillator in memory of her late father.
“Since joining JLR, my growth and development journey started in collaboration with Ashorne Hill on the graduate training programme, so I felt it was very fitting to give back to a very special place that aids in developing JLR employees like myself.”
The team at Ashorne Hill are touched by Sophie’s beautiful story and kind gesture in her donation.
Defibrillators saves lives, so having access to a life-saving equipment, should it ever be needed makes all the difference – thank you again to Sophie, Heart Health in Business and JLR.
Read Sophie’s story below:
“After the loss of my father to a sudden cardiac arrest in 2019, I have suffered with PTSD and the indescribable grief of loosing my dad when I was 17.
My dad had his own training and development business (CBO Business Development) so I was taught from a young age about having a growth mindset and being resilient during hard times.
As a JLR People Chapter employee, I was truly excited to donate a life saving defibrillator package to Ashorne Hill, which I was lucky enough to win through my dedicated group Heart Health in Business on LinkedIn.
Since joining JLR, my growth and development journey started in collaboration with Ashorne Hill on the graduate training programme, so I felt it was very fitting to give back to a very special place that aids in developing JLR employees like myself.
With my father being so dedicated to growth and development in his business, I felt it was truly fitting and a place my dad would have loved also!
