Zetland FM Local News - 22nd September 2016
A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Thursday 22nd September 2016.
Local company PD Ports has been recognised for its work bringing together industry and education to raise the aspirations of young people on Teesside.
The company won the Corporate Social Responsibility trophy at the SHD Logistics Awards which were held recently in Birmingham.
The High Tide Foundation, which was co-founded by PD Ports in 2012, has worked with more than 4,000 young people across 35 local schools, supported by 80 private sector businesses.
The foundation offers unique work experience and industry-led skills programmes including a six-week after school Cadetship for 12 to 14-year-olds which follows the journey of a mobile phone from Taiwan to Teesport to help explain the global supply chain.
The popular Summer Scheme offers teenagers aged 16 and 17 two-week work placements with diverse industries in and around Teesport as well as providing a limited number of places to sail on a working container ship to a European port.
A course of healthy adult cooking lessons has got underway in Redcar thanks to funding from South Tees Clinical Commissioning Group.
A new cooking group based at 'The Link' in Redcar provides a place to chat and share experiences and at the same time learn some new healthy recipes that you can share with the family.
The launch session saw Thai Curry, Courgette Cakes and Veg Noodles all a big hit with parents and kids alike.
The sessions have been made possible thanks to funding from the South Tees Clinical Commissioning Group, and take place at 'The Link' on Station Road in Redcar every Friday morning from 10am.
The Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland, Councillor Barry Hunt, is hosting a charity golf day at Hunley Hotel & Golf Club this week.

Additional games can be played on the day, one of which includes a £10,000 cash prize for the lucky golfer who scores a hole-in-one.
Prizes will also be available for first, second, and third place teams, also ‘nearest to the pin’ and the longest drive.
