CCEP's apprentices celebrate their graduation at Peterborough Cathedral.

A ceremony was held at Peterborough Cathedral to mark the successfully completion of the course by the nine apprentices.

The apprentices are Mariella Catling, Ben Kimble, Alex Henlan, George Brown, Ross Lee, Bailey Danahar, Josh Lynch, Tom Hutchinson and Natalie Hudson.

Their success comes six months after CCEP, which has its customer hub in Morley Way, Woodston, announced its largest apprentice recruitment drive supported by a £1 million investment.
