The Household Cavalry has joined forces with Centrepoint to provide training for the young homeless.

The Mounted Regiment took time out of their busy schedules to teach the youngsters, studying for gardening qualifications, the importance of teamwork.

Six students received team building training to help them work together more effectively.

They were also given a tour of the Blues and Royals Squadron in Knightsbridge.

Cornet Barney Campbell outlined the main focus of the day by pointing out early on in the visit: “There is no ‘I’ in team!”

The regiment demonstrated how every duty and ceremonial preparation is done as a team, from changing horseshoes to arranging uniforms.

Later in the day presentations were given from those men who had taken teamwork to the limit working together in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Cornet Barney Campbell said:“The team building day gives the young people the chance to see first hand how an efficient, well organised and structured team works together to achieve its targets.”
