TWO students from The Henry Cort Community College in Fareham were presented with an award by Prince William.

The Duke of Cambridge met Hayden Price and Joshua Payton as he presented them with an award for completing a community project in 24 Hours at Lord Wilson School in Sarisbury Green.

The students, both 16, met Prince William in Canary Wharf in London as part of a charity gala event hosted by a financial trading company, BGC.

The students had participated in a programme led by SkillForce, an educational charity working in Fareham which uses the skills of ex-forces to inspire young people.

The culmination of the programme was ‘24 Hours to make a Difference’, where the students came together to create and build a school garden.

Natasha Berry is the SkillForce instructor.

She said: ‘It was an honour to introduce Hayden and Joshua from The Henry Cort Community College to The Duke of Cambridge, our charity’s royal patron.

‘He really took an interest in the work of our 
students and it was a really special day.’
