Scottish chef gets a taste of success

 
April 15th 2011
 


A young Scot has narrowly missed winning The Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Award this week.

When former homeless drug addict Steven Loughton, of Edinburgh, left prison he decided to make a change for the better.

The 21-year-old overcame drug and alcohol abuse to qualify for The Prince’s Trust Get into Cooking programme, before being headhunted to work at The Prestonfield House Hotel and The Witchery – two of Edinburgh’s top restaurants.

He was one of just three people in the UK to be nominated for the award, which celebrates young people who have changed their lives.

Mr Loughton said: “I’m really proud to be nominated for this award. I have come a long way in the past couple of years and I don’t think I would have managed it without the help and support of the Prince’s Trust.”
