In a bid to encourage more volunteers, The Prince’s Trust hosted an evening showcasing some of its greatest work.

A presentation was made to council workers in the public sector at the engagement event, last Tuesday evening.

Held at King’s Lynn Town Hall, those attending also heard insights from some young people who have been helped by the programmes as well as volunteer mentors who have supported them to reach positive outcomes.

Among the guest speakers  were young ambassador Zack Chandler and mentor Alan Taylor, Your Local Paper’s managing director.

Mr Taylor said: “The event was to raise awareness and continue the search for new volunteers.

“It was about enlightening them as to how many children The Prince’s Trust has helped.

“Myself and councillor Avril Wright gave a speech. I told them why I enjoyed being involved. I shared my personal experience working with the charity and how it helps young people.” Guests also had the chance to ask the speakers questions.

The Prince’s Trust helps 11 to 30-year-olds to achieve their potential by providing support. Some of the young people may be unemployed or need help to make a start in life.

The trust can help in a number of ways and has helped around one million people so far.
