PICTURED: Prince of Wales visits Manvers 999 base to fire up trust

THE Prince of Wales met young people this morning at Dearne Fire Station who have turned their lives around with help from his charity, The Prince’s Trust. 

His Royal Highness visited Dearne Community Fire Station in Manvers Way where his trust is partnering with South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue to deliver its team programme to young people. 

The scheme is a 12-week course that aims to build the confidence and employability skills of unemployed young people.

Prince Charles took part in a discussion group with former course members and watched a role play scenario carried out by youngsters and fire station staff.

Clare Crabb, north regional director at The Prince’s Trust, said: “The trust works hard to help young people reach their potential and we have plans to reach even more. 

“We are delighted that HRH The Prince of Wales visited Dearne Community Fire Station and heard first-hand from young people whose lives have been transformed by the support they’ve received through the team programme.”
