Duke of Rothesay visits local branch of The Prince’s Trust in north-east port

The Duke of Rothesay met young people who have turned their lives around with the help of his charity, The Prince’s Trust, on a visit to Peterhead yesterday.

Prince Charles visited Aberdeen Foyer in the heart of Peterhead to speak to people involved in the charity’s Team 12-week personal development programme.

The aim is to help unemployed people aged between 16-25 gain skills and confidence to find a job.

His Royal Highness was joined by Prince’s Trust team leader Bryan MacKay for a tour of the centre.

The prince was introduced to Simon Gemmel who faced difficulties at school and the breakdown of his family.

Now 23-years-old, Mr Gemmel has completed the Team programme and secured a job in the offshore supply industry. He is also a young ambassador for the charity.

Allan Watt, director of the charity’s Scottish branch, joined Prince Charles at the visit. He said: “Our Prince’s Trust Team programmes in Peterhead and Fraserburgh, run by the Foyer, are a brilliant example of what can be achieved when different organisations work together to support local young people into work, education or training.

“We are delighted that His Royal Highness was able to meet so many young people today who have benefited from the programme, as it is thanks to his determination and leadership that the initiative exists today.”

Later the Duke of Rothesay visited Fraserburgh trailer manufacturing firm Gray and Adams to mark the company’s 60th anniversary.
