A BUSINESS is backing youth charity The Prince's Trust - one of The Comet's charities of the year.

Digital Depot, in Stevenage High Street, has donated a state-of-the-art camera to the charity, which helps disadvantaged young people into work, to use to take photos of those on programmes, or at events or workshops.

Retail manager Jake Helman said: "I heard The Prince's Trust needed a camera and thought what better way to do something for the charity than donate one of our cameras.

"I am a great supporter of the charity helping disadvantaged young people into work."
