Prince’s Trust residential – 21 May

I am following a Prince’s Trust Team involving young adults from Hinckley and from Coalville.  The programme is delivered by Sally MacNaughten and Abi Hounsfield of Leicestershire Fire and Rescue and includes a week at a residential centre in Derbyshire where the group undertake a wide range of activities and planning exercises.  We caught up with them on an orienteering day which ended with abseiling on a buttress to a railway embankment (pictured) followed by some more testing abseiling off a bridge (which unfortunately we could not stay to see).  The twelve week course ends in July with presentation of awards and I am much looking forward to hearing the participants to talk about their experience of the course and how it has helped them.
