I was joined by Matt Frost who I gave the opportunity to became an assistant blacksmith for a week. This was week 10 of a year long project where Matt is working 52 different jobs in 52 weeks. He travelled all over the UK to try and discover his true passion. Matt has just finished this challenge, during the 12 months of the project he donated ALL of his wages to The Prince’s Trust.
You can follow his progress on http://www.oneweekjob.co.uk.
