We are extremely grateful to David Harrison founder of the Harrison Centre for generously donating £2,000 to Heel & Toe Children’s Charity.
North East businessman David Harrison founded the Harrison Centre for Social Mobility in 2017 to champion unsung heroes working with young people in the North East of England.
HCSM provides advice and financial support to charities across the region.
David was born in Cardiff and grew up in County Durham. His first job was at the Consett Iron Company and in his 30’s he set up his own building company before moving into financial services after a serious leg injury.
Now he is one of the North of England’s leading entrepreneurs and has over 40 years’ experience in business, employing over 1000 people. In 1997, he founded financial advice firm Positive Solutions which grew to be the largest in the country.
David is currently chairman of Newcastle-based financial technology group True Potential LLP.
“The Harrison Centre for Social Mobility has always been about giving people an opportunity to be at their best, with practical support. It has been especially rewarding to work with some of the region’s unsung heroes who do a great job by improving people’s life chances. I am delighted that we can support Heel and Toe to enable them to continue their important work.”
