Chiswick Woman Praised By The Prince's Trust
Gill Golding's work with the youth charity receives recognition
A Chiswick woman was among over one hundred volunteers recognised for their work by the Prince's Trust.
The Trust hosted its first celebration evening for the group at its central London head office to recognise their contribution to young people’s lives.
Volunteer business mentor Gill Golding, from Chiswick, was named runner up of the ‘non judgmental’ award for her work with the youth charity.

Gill says: “I really enjoy volunteering with The Prince’s Trust because every session is different. It’s a privilege to be part of a young person’s journey to success and help them to plot out how to get there. I get a lot out of it too.”
Amy Lenderyou, senior head of programmes for education, training and development at the Prince’s Trust, says: “This special event was a great way for us to thank our volunteers for the hard work that they do. Working with more than 6,000 volunteers across the country, we simply couldn’t operate without them. But we need more, who can give their time and expertise, in order to reach the young people who need our support. It’s a great opportunity and I’d urge anyone who’s interested to get in touch.”
Five prizes, in line with The Prince’s Trust’s core values, were awarded during the evening. Volunteers also had the chance to network with each other, share success stories and highlight the key issues currently affecting the next generation.
