A Mauchline graduate of a Prince's Foundation programme got the opportunity to travel to London to be part of the coronation celebrations.

Dylan Craig, 21, from Mauchline, was one of 15 pupils engaged on The Prince’s Foundation’s Food For The Future and Future 30 programmes, who were issued a very special invitation to attend a special screening of the Coronation at St Margaret’s Church, Westminster Abbey.

During their visit to London, the pupils also had the opportunity to enjoy inspiring industry visits to Jamie Oliver HQ, YOOX NET-A-PORTER, Fortnum & Mason, and the Alexander McQueen Roses exhibition in Mayfair thanks to the support of The Prince's Foundation.

Dylan Craig, a graduate of The Prince's Foundation's Introduction To Hospitality programme who now works as a kitchen porter at the prestigious Fife Arms Hotel in Braemar, Royal Deeside, said: "It was an unforgettable experience to be in the centre of London and to see how the procession and ceremony played out.

"I saw Emma Thompson and Ant and Dec, which was just incredible."

A spokesperson for the charity added: "The Prince’s Foundation is proud to provide unique, hands-on learning opportunities which champion sustainability.
