John-Paul Dumbell joined Dorothy Goodman School as a patron in 2014, despite being based in Liverpool JP and his business have made a huge impact on our young people. Through his business contacts JP supports the school by providing equipment, tools and materials to our work pathway groups. Whether that be building materials for our DIY groups, bikes for our bike maintenance team or cooking equipment for catering our catering and hospitality pathway JP is always on hand to support however he can.
JP also makes regular visits to our students from Liverpool to talk to them about employability opportunities and what it is like to work in the building trade. When he is not talking to our students he is helping to support the school by putting on or joining in on fundraising events.
