Halton's Prince's Trust Team graduates in style

A group of young people from Halton have graduated from a Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service-led The Prince's Trust programme.

The graduation took place at the Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service Training Centre based at Sadler Road, Winsford, and the team of five who were all dressed in evening dress, attended the event.

To graduate from the programme the team members all gave a two-minute speech about their time on the course. The speeches were read to local dignitaries, family, friends and people who have helped and mentored them over the 12-week course.

Keith Barker is the Prince’s Trust Programme Manager for Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and works with teams in Halton. He said: “I think these individuals should be very proud of what they have achieved.

“It has been a lot of hard work and they definitely deserve to celebrate this now, it has been a pleasure to lead them and work with them over the last 12 weeks.”

The team took part in a number of activities during the programme, which included:

•Food hygiene, health and safety and first aid courses

•Disability awareness training and driving safety course

•Confidence building workshop

The Prince's Trust Team programme is a 12-week free course giving young people between the ages of 16 and 25 the opportunity to learn new skills, complete qualifications and gain greater self-confidence.

The next teams will be running from 31 January 2022 and Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service is now recruiting for team members so, if anybody is interested, or you know anyone aged between 16 and 25 who you think would benefit from The Prince's Trust Team programme, visit our Prince's Trust page for more information.
