The Prince of Wales will attend a very special awards ceremony on Monday afternoon to recognise young people who have overcome serious disadvantages to turn their lives around. At the Prince's Trust and Samsung Celebrate Success Awards, hosted by Ant and Dec at the London Palladium, Prince Charles and a star-studded audience will hear how the youth charity he founded 40 years ago has helped them beat abuse, drug addiction, homelessness, depression and unemployment.

"If The Princes Trust had not helped me I would not have a job," said Alex. "I would be playing X Box in my bedroom because that's what I like to do. Even though I have to get up at 5 in the morning, I am happy because I finish at 2 and I am earning money and am more independent – this is because I had the help from DHL and from The Prince’s Trust."Craig WalkerCraig, 25, from Coleraine, Londonderry was eight when he saw his father stab his mother to death. The effect it had on him devastated his life. He left school at 13 and sought comfort in alcohol. Aged 20, he became a father to a little girl named Zara in memory of his mother.
