Our latest Prince’s Trust programme is running in Dearne, and the recruits on Team Valiant are really taking the bull by the horns.
They were recently invited by the Commanding Officer of the 2nd Battalion in the Yorkshire Regiment to visit Catterick Garrison and meet the regiment.
It was an early start for the team, travelling to North Yorkshire to take up the invite. On arrival, following introductions, they were treated to a display by the Drums Platoon before moving on to different stances which included vehicle recovery, command tasks, physical training and finally finishing with a weapons and equipment display.
The Commanding Officer commended the group for their participation and enthusiasm, stating how impressed he was with their efforts on the day. The youngsters really demonstrated what a fantastic team they are, winning medals from the Commanding Officer for being the quickest team to complete the command tasks.
On behalf of Team Valiant, we would like to pass on thanks to the 2nd Battalion Yorkshire Regiment and The Prince’s Trust for providing this unique opportunity.
