CERTIFICATES were presented to ten volunteers from the Bognor Regis Prince’s Trust team.
The recognition of their efforts was handed over by town mayor Tony Gardiner.
He spoke about the efforts of the team members during their 12-week personal development programme, during which they gained a level-one qualification in employment.
Project co-ordinator Roy Newnham said: “It is always inspiring to see and listen to the learners at their final presentation and realise just how much they accomplished for themselves.”
The presentation ceremony was held at the Riverside Caravan Centre.
The team, aged 16-25, started the evening’s proceedings with a presentation of their experiences.
They recounted how they overcame personal challenges, learnt to work as a team, how to plan effectively and organise themselves to accomplish tasks.
This was seen with the community projects at Elizabeth House in Bognor and The Old Glassworks homeless drop-in centre in Chichester.
Employers who provided work placements were thanked for the opportunities.
Stagecoach was also thanked for its travel support. The team members explained their individual hopes.
The next Prince’s Trust programme is due to start on January 26. More details by texting TEAM to 07523 933981.
