The Prince’s Trust #CelebrateSuccess Awards
There was a congregation of famous faces in the London Palladium yesterday, as they came together to celebrate ‘The Prince’s Trust and TK Maxx & HomeSense National Celebrate Success Awards’. Hosted by Ant and Dec, with Phillip Schofield co-presenting the prestigious ‘Young Achiever of the Year Award’, and attended by HRH The Prince of Wales, the annual event is an “opportunity to pay tribute to the bravery, determination and sheer hard work that our young people demonstrate” and “the exceptional people – their champions – who helped them on their journey” (princes-trust.org.uk)
The Prince’s Trust dedicates its time to helping 13-30 year-olds who are struggling at school or with employment, investing in them to help them overcome such obstacles, while yesterday’s ceremony offers said young people a platform where they can share their extraordinary stories and achievements, and be recognised for their bravery and successes. Over the past ten years, the Prince’s Trust has returned £1.4 billion in value to society by helping disadvantaged young people. These people may have left care, faced issues such as homelessness, been in trouble with the law or suffered from mental health problems.
2017’s ‘The Prince’s Trust and TK Maxx & HomeSense National Celebrate Success Awards’ let both the Trust and those it has helped shine through.
