Prince Charles has hosted a star-studded event to mark the 35th anniversary of the Prince's Trust.

Surrounded by charity ambassadors such as Rod Stewart, Kevin Spacey and Jools Holland at Clarence House, Charles told supporters that “everybody has got some potential, skill or talent that can be brought out. I’m unbelievably proud of all those who show they really can do it. I hope I shall live long enough to see even more people make a fantastic success of their lives and give something back to this country.”

The Prince’s Trust gives practical and financial support to help disadvantaged young people aged between 14 and 30 develop workplace skills. The Trust offers support by training, mentoring and giving financial assistance to help disadvantaged young people achieve their potential.

“When you have kids who have an incredibly difficult background with challenges that I couldn’t imagine and they just get that little bit of encouragement… at exactly the right time, it is literally life-changing,” said Kevin Spacey.

The Prince’s Trust has helped more than 650,000 young people who are not in education, employment, or training since it was established in 1976.
