Sodexo Foundation donates £25,000 to Prince's Trust hospitality training programme in Wales

The Sodexo Foundation has donated £25,000 to support a two-week hospitality training programme for young people in Wales.

The scheme will be delivered as a joint venture by the Prince's Trust in Wales, Sodexo Defence and Tillery Valley, Sodexo's food production firm, when it begins in November at Cawdor Barracks, Brawdy.

The Prince's Trust has invited 15 unemployed young people to attend the "Get into Hospitality" programme to develop a range of employability skills and gain hands-on work experience relevant to the sector.

Karen Roulston, operations support manager at Sodexo Defence for Wales, said the hospitality programme was an excellent initiative that the business was proud to be part of.

"Supporting young people, with mentoring and training to gain valuable experience within the wide range of services Sodexo provides to the MoD, will bring benefits to our business, too," she explained.

Rick Libbey, director of the Prince's Trust Cymru, added: "We run the ‘Get into Hospitality' programme in partnership with employers, to give young people who are work-ready a helping hand by giving them a mix of vocational skills, practical training and hands-on experience, then supporting them as they look for work."
