Spotlight on MPCT’s Adam Priddle

We are shining the light on the next entrant to our MLT ‘Hall of fame’ Adam Priddle, Centre Manager MPS Pembrokeshire.

A veteran of 10 years’ service with The 1st Queen’s Dragoon Guards (The Welsh Cavalry), Adam served in a variety of roles and on Operations in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Always interested in Adventurous Training, Adam gained water sports qualifications while serving in Germany. Using The Mohnesee Sail Training Centre (famous for the dam of that name, breached in the Dambuster’s Raid in WW2.) he was focussed on building a broad base of qualifications for a career on leaving the Army. Adding the Single-handed Army Dinghy Sailing Champion to his growing portfolio, Adam also competed in Nordic Skiing and football events. On leaving the Army, Adam was employed in Outdoor Education, initially at Chichester and then moving to Wales after a few years.

Joining MPCT in 2019, Adam is the Centre Manager of The Military Preparation School in Pembrokeshire. Based in Pembrokeshire College, Haverfordwest and a smaller site at Ysgol Harri Tudur in Pembroke, the college is the largest MPS location with over 120 attendees. They include children between the ages of 14-16 from schools across Pembrokeshire. At the recent MPCT Senior Leadership Team Awards Ceremony Adam was awarded “Most Positive Impact” for his efforts at the centre.

A relative newcomer to MPCT and the MLT, Adam has seen the value of the charity’s aims and charter in providing support to all MPCT Learners, including those at his college in Pembrokeshire. Carrying on from his previous charity fundraising efforts, he has embarked on a very ambitious challenge with funds raised to be split equally between the MLT and his other chosen charity “Friends of Portfield School.”

“25 press-ups a day for 365 days” is Adam’s current fundraising event which he started on August 1st 2020. He is now over 5 months into his challenge and has already exceeded his target of £500 and currently has gained £713 in sponsorship. This continues to grow and you can help Adam by googling “Adam Priddle Just Giving” where you can make a donation. I am looking forward to joining him for a “quick 25” when restrictions are lifted!

Fundraising for our charity has been very difficult during the COVID lockdown period but we have still provided support to our Learners during some very difficult times. Adam’s efforts are greatly appreciated and he richly deserves his time in the spotlight – Thank you Adam.
