Joe’s Dream Job

A huge congratulations to Joe who has landed his dream job!

Joe turned 18 this month and was offered a job working in a bar for a few hours each week. For as long as we can remember Joe has talked about wanting to work behind a bar, when he was given the opportunity by Kathie at The Three Horse Shoes he was absolutely thrilled. Joe’s story was shared on social media and quickly went viral, capturing the attention of the local media. Joe gave a fabulous radio interview and then his story was filmed and shared on the BBC Newcastle Facebook page.

Well Done Joe!!!
