HCC: The foundations of a successful business

Posted 13th June


After being in care for 16 years in Essex, Richard Hunt was moved to Hackney. He found Hackney Community College and he said “It saved my life. I did not have a trade and college was my first step. It was a blessing”.

Richard had great talent. He achieved NVQ1 and 2 in carpentry and joinery, under the guidance of John Cotter: “An amazing teacher”.

Richard is now a successful carpenter with his own business, Hunt Interiors.

Richard concludes: “I would recommend the carpentry course, or any other course at the college, to anyone who wants to make something of their life. You can be what you want to be. You just have to push yourself.”
