Kirsty, Jessica, Rhiannon and Demi-Leigh made up one of five finalist teams at their school’s Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) final.
The girls have each benefitted from Ferrywell Youth Project’s DIME sessions and their personal connection to the charity moved judges Garreth Wood, Trustee of The Wood Foundation.
YPI is the flagship programme of The Wood Foundation. Garreth said:
“It was a huge pleasure to judge Craigroyston Community High School’s YPI final. YPI teaches young people about humanity, citizenship and provides insight into the issues facing Scottish communities. The young people should be proud of how they have represented their school and community today.”
The funds will be used in the creation of a welcoming space for its users in its new premises.
Kirsty was part of the winning team. She said:
“We are so happy that we won the grant and able to give back to a charity that means a lot to us all.
