A youth trust worker has been rewarded for his dedication by being given an award by the Queen.
John Newman, of Norwich, received a Member of the Victorian Order from Her Majesty after volunteering with The Prince's Trust for more than 27 years.
The trust helps 13-30-year olds who are unemployed or struggling at school.
Mr Newman, who volunteers as a mentor, first became involved with the trust in 1989 while working for an agricultural company.
During his time with the trust he has mainly been involved with the trust's enterprise programme, which provides budding entrepreneurs with the support and guidance they need to make their business a success.
