His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales has agreed to renew his Patronage of Young Dragons Wales for a further term.
In 2009, The Prince of Wales provided the catalyst for the establishment of the Young Dragons Wales/Dreigiau Ifanc Cymru project which brings together all the uniformed youth services to increase the scale and quality of opportunity for young people to volunteer in these services. The Young Dragon Wales/Dreigiau Ifanc Cymru motto is “Fire the Adventure”.
Gerry Frobisher MBE Young Dragons Wales/Dreigiau Ifanc Cymru Director and Co-ordinator, said: “On behalf of Young Dragons Wales/Dreigiau Ifanc Cymru, I am delighted with the news.
“Young Dragons Wales/Dreigiau Ifanc Cymru is a collective title for all the uniformed youth groups in The Principality, such as the Army Cadets, Air Cadets, Sea Cadets, Police Cadets, Fire Cadets, St John Cadets, Scouts, Guides and the Boys and Girls Brigades.
“Over the past seven years The Prince has been very supportive of our work in Wales which in the main works with, supports and develops the uniformed youth groups, encouraging more adult volunteers and young people to join their desired group”.
The Prince of Wales became Patron of Young Dragons Wales/Dreigiau Ifanc Cymru in 2009 at the launch of the initiative, as he is very supportive of youth volunteering.
Mr Frobisher added: “I am delighted that His Royal Highness has extended his patronage for Young Dragons Wales/Dreigiau Ifanc Cymru. The support of The Prince of Wales as our Patron means a great deal to the members of the uniformed youth groups, their leaders and volunteers associated with Young Dragons Wales/Dreigiau Ifanc Cymru.
