EDP Norfolk - - THE MARDLER -

Adam Morter from Nor­wich has won the Cen­tral Re­gion Map­pin and Webb Young Am­bas­sador cat­e­gory at The Prince’s Trust Awards. The Prince’s Trust and TK Maxx & Homesense Awards recog­nise the achieve­ments of young peo­ple who have suc­ceeded against the odds, im­proved their chances in life, and had a pos­i­tive im­pact on their lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Adam had a dif­fi­cult child­hood and he ended up home­less and feel­ing iso­lated. “Life at home was dif­fi­cult grow­ing up. School was also a chal­lenge. In ad­di­tion, limited work ex­pe­ri­ence meant I found it re­ally hard to get a job.”

Tak­ing part in The Prince’s Trust Make Your Mark, Get into Re­tail pro­gramme, run with Marks and Spencer, was a pos­i­tive ex­pe­ri­ence for Adam. “This has been the best day of my life! I’ve had an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with The Princes Trust and to­day just topped it off,” he says.
