Rebecca Sykes gave Horizon’s Year 7/8 master class students a ‘snapshot’ of her life as a Barnsley-based photographer on Thursday afternoon.

Rebecca, who owns Blush Photography, is part of the ’Barnsley Businesses Inspiring Students’ project – the brainchild of Dodworth-based financial management company Lifetime.

Lifetime has built up a stable of over 70 speakers – and it was the turn of Rebecca to go into Horizon Community College on Dodworth Road, where the venture is initially being trialled, to deliver ‘her story’.

She followed in the footsteps of best-selling author Milly Johnson, who had ‘inspired’ students the previous week.

Rebecca also proved to be a big hit, so much so that Horizon’s Year 7 twitter feed were quick to issue the congratulatory message: “Great presentation Rebecca, and great tips on photography, love the last supper photograph!”

Lifetime’s ‘BBIS’ project is now really beginning to pick up pace, with a dozen or so speakers having gone into Horizon to ‘inspire’ the students in the last few months, including Lifetime’s own managing director Ian Dickinson, the aforementioned Milly Johnson, Team Activ’s Social Enterprise champion Darren Padgett and Barnsley FC’s chief executive Ben Mansford.
