prince's trust team programme

The Prince’s trust spend 3 days with Vane Hill ARBD residents…


The Prince’s trust charity was founded in 1976 by Prince Charles. The charity works with 50,00 young people each year; running training programs providing mentoring support and offering financial grants. 80% of which go on to employment, education, training or volunteering.

As part of The Prince’s trust Torquay team’s 16 week training course, Their team of nine 16-18 year olds spent three days with Vane Hill ARBD residents; hosting a variety of different activities, which were: arts and crafts, Pool, Quizzes, Music Bingo, baking and a gig performed by one of the Prince’s trust volunteers.

The arts & crafts activity saw them making Easter cards to send to loved ones or decorating polystyrene eggs, which everyone enjoyed taking part.

For Pool, they played games of “killer” A mini game which consists of players having a number of lives and on each go they must pot at least one ball, otherwise they will lose a life. The winner of each game was given an Easter egg; which cost the Prince’s Trust a lot of eggs, as they were faced with a few Pool fanatics.

Music bingo worked in the same way as bingo, but instead of numbers, music was played, this provoked conversation and nostalgia of hearing a familiar song.

They put on quizzes about film and general knowledge and baked cupcakes together.

The week was ended with a small gig from Terry a current Prince’s Trust Volunteer. She played and sang new and old songs with her guitar, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and thought it was a great end to the week.

At the end of their 16 week course, they must present their work in a Final Presentation to receive their certificate. Vane Hill was invited along to watch the presentation joining around 50 people including the Lord Mayor.
