SARH rewards Prince’s Trust volunteers
YOUNG volunteers have been rewarded for their community work in Stafford.
Eight volunteers from the Prince’s Trust 248 Stafford were presented with certificates at a presentation held at Stafford and Rural Homes (SARH) headquarters at the Rurals.
SARH’S Director of Neighbourhoods, Debbie Emmitt, awarded the certificates to the 16 to 25-year-old volunteers who completed a 12-week programme of work on various community projects.
“I was delighted to present the certificates to the team and to see the positive difference the Prince’s Trust project has made to their lives,” said Debbie.
The team also gave a presentation to explain the work they have done and recount their experiences, which included:
- Spending a week away at a residential activity centre
- Supporting a project based in their local community
- Completing a two-week work placement
- Participating in a team challenge, involving caring for others
- Doing a team presentation SARH has supported the project by giving work experience placements to two volunteers, providing funding for the team’s refurbishment work at Walton Hall School, and allowing the team to complete their team challenge at Oxleathers Court Independent Living Scheme.
Shev Lambert, Prince’s Trust Team Leader for team 248 Stafford, said: “I would like to say thanks to SARH for the support they have given to team 248 Stafford.
“The partnership that we have created with Stafford and Rural Homes has been of great benefit to the young people on the Prince’s Trust programme.”
