HUDDERSFIELD Giants favourite Eorl Crabtree handed out certificates to young mums who passed a confidence-building course.

The certificates were presented to members of the Home-Start Mummy and Baby Bees group who completed the Steps programme.

This is organised by the Pacific Institute, a group providing training to help organisations and individuals improve performance.

Steps helps people to develop effective thinking skills to guide their lives by breaking down barriers, setting and achieving goals and building confidence.

The Mummy and Baby Bees group is run by Angie Schofield, group worker at Home-Start Kirklees, with help from volunteers.

The group meets weekly at Coule Royd, Dalton, and is paid for by the Kirklees Teenage Pregnancy Strategy group and Children in Need.

"Everyone enjoyed the course," said Angie. "Since it finished some of the young mums have gone on to college or are looking for employment.

"We are really grateful to Eorl for taking the time to come along." Home-Start is a registered family support charity. It welcomes volunteer helpers; for details phone Home-Start on 01484 421925.
