“For over 40 years, @princestrust has truly changed the lives of young people. For many more decades, we at the @prideofbritain Awards, have had the honor of meeting so many of their young Achievement Award winners.
“I have been an ambassador for the trust for a very long time and have seen their work very closely.
“The stories of these amazing young people are varied, from being addicted to drugs and violence, then landing a job they love out of trust, to going to jail and then becoming a multi-millionaire businessman.
