December 27, 2018

I'm still working hard on site and building up my portfolio for my carpentry NVQ. And I'll be starting my college courses for english and maths this month as part of my apprenticeship.

With some help from my member manager I've also bought a car using some of the funds from my campaign. We'd planned for 4 months car rental but I couldn't rent until I had my UK licence for a year. So we decided the best step would be to help me purchase a second hand car. It took some time to find a good one within my budget but on Christmas Eve I got the keys to my new vehicle! I'm really happy - having a car means that I can bring my own tools to work, travel to construction sites that are further away, and do extra hours at the weekends.

And now I'm starting the process to find my own place to stay. So these extra earnings are going to be a huge help. Thank you for the support - it made all of this possible. Eventually I want to give the same support to new Beam members. I'm excited for 2019!

In the Beam office to pick up my first set of tools! It will be great to start working with them. I'm still really enjoying my work on the construction site. It's my first winter working in the UK so it is just a bit cold. ☃️ Hopefully I can pick up some extra work over Christmas to start saving.

I'll also be starting some English and Maths courses in college this January which I need to do to complete my apprenticeship.

Thanks for your support!

Hi all,

I wanted to thank you for your support so far. I've begun my apprenticeship. You can see some of the things I've been working hard on in the photos. 🔨

Soon I will have raised enough for my car hire and the first set of my own tools. I'll then be able to pick up even more work. I'll let you know how it goes!

I've already started work with a construction company. I'm building things like the staircase in this photo - we have to take photos of all the things that we do to show our assessors.

I'm excited to start my apprenticeship and study for my qualification. Things are going forward and I'm really pleased.
