“This is the first time I have attended The Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards and I can honestly say it has been one of the most inspirational evenings I have had the pleasure of hosting,” Eamonn said of the night.
“Each one of the 21 finalists has overcome unbelievable obstacles and challenges to turn their lives around with the help of the Trust. It just goes to show what can be achieved when the right support is given at the right time to help young people who feel that they have run out of options. Huge congratulations to all of them for the courage and determination they have shown at such a young age.”
