Volunteers reach the Summit
Thirthy Three young people and their families came together to receive Saltire Awards for their commitment to the community. The event was scheduled to take place in the Caithness Nuclear Archive but due to to unforseen cirumstances the event had to relocate to Wick Heritage Centre at short notice, many thanks to the centre for this wonderful offer of venue.
Gail Ross MSP kindly agreed to present certificates and also to present two Summit Award Plaques to Jayden Alexander and Amy Cameron. After nomination Jayden and Amys applications were reviewed by a panel of peers before agreeing that they should become worthy winners.
The Saltire Awards endorse volunteering throughout Scotland they were introduced by the Scottish governmant to encourage young people aged 12-25 to volunteer. There are various levels of achievement culminating in the Saltire Summit award.
