cheshire fire prince's trust graduates

Young people from South Cheshire graduated from a Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service led Prince’s Trust programme at an awards ceremony.

The team of 12, all dressed in black tie and evening dresses for the celebration, gave a two minute speech about their time on the course.

The speeches were in front of a packed audience of local dignitaries, family, friends and people who have helped and mentored them over the 12-week course.

Graduating from the course were:

Andrew Beach
Amy Hallwood
Benedict Caress
Brandon Yu
Jack Dearman
Joel Wolfendale
Lewis Brookes
Marina Danicic
Matthew Lee
Natasha Lomax
Rebecca Finney
Tom McCaughan

Programme Manager was Sarah McCreaddie who co-ordinated the team with assistant project manager Jim Bennett.

Jessica Burton, Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service Youth Engagement Manager, said: “This course is another example of how the service provides value to the community.

“A lot of the young people on the course have little or no qualifications and have become disengaged, leading to social problems.

“Over the last 12 weeks, these young people have learnt respect, self-confidence and a variety of new skills.

“They have grown as individuals and now have clear aims and objectives in life.”

The team took part in activities during the programme, which included raising money for a community project by bag packing, food hygiene and first aid courses, drug and alcohol awareness training, week-long team building event in North Wales.

The next team will be starting on February 5.

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service is now recruiting, so anyone interested aged between 16 and 25 who would benefit from The Princes Trust Team programme, call Sarah on 07837 121523.
