The Young Dragons/Dreigiau Ifanc is a partnership led by HRH The Prince of Wales that aims to increase opportunities for young people to engage in structured activities that benefit local communities and involves collaboration between uniformed youth organisations (Scouts, Girlguiding, St John Ambulance, Military Cadets, Police Cadets, Fire Cadets, Boys and Girls Brigade, etc.), local authority Youth Services and Department of Education; and third sector organisations.

Their objectives are: To share information and resources. Work together to recruit, train and retain volunteers. Maintain and support existing youth groups/units. Provide guidance and support to new youth groups/units

Between Thursday 20th – Saturday 22nd June, teamed up with young people from HRH The Prince of Wales’ Young Dragons initiative and Mentors from his visionary charity, the British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) to complete the WAAT4 Challenge in the Brecon Beacons.

The WAAT4 Challenge, a 40K circular team navigation challenge is set amongst the iconic Pen y Fan in the BreconBeacons and features elements of two Special Forces selection routes. The eight miles of arduous terrain that the team walked each day is, for Phil, the equivalent of over a marathon due to his injury.They finished in time to greet and present prizes to approximately 100 teams who were completing their WAAT4 Challenge on the same day. This anual event is organised by a small team from Dyfed-Powys Police, supported by the Brecon Mountain Rescue Team ,Wales Air Ambulance, the Gurkhas and The Castle Hotel. Their simple objective is to raise money to support good causes.
