A group of young people from Crewe have graduated from a Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service-led Prince's Trust programme at an awards ceremony held at Cranage Hall Hotel, Holmes Chapel.
The team of 14, who were 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.

Programme Manager was Sarah McCreaddie and assistant Programme Manager was Dominic Page who were assisted by Isobel Sykes.

"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 a number of activities during the programme which included:
The Prince's Trust programme is a 12 week course giving young people between the ages of 16 and 25 the opportunity to learn new skills, complete qualifications and gain greater self-confidence.
