Lorn group spring success

The Awards nights continue fast and furious! Last week the Lorn DofE group celebrated the achievements of their young people at an award ceremony held at the Sailing Club in Oban. Thirteen young people were awarded their Bronze and nine their Silver.

Lorn Bronze Award Holders

The DofE Team in Argyll & Bute would like to thank their volunteers. Without their support they wouldn’t be able to support half as many young people through their DofE.

Girvan Academy Gives Back

A group of S3 participants from Girvan Academy have been going above and beyond their DofE Volunteering to give back to the community for Easter.

The girls worked on creating the Easter trees in the photo to brighten up Ainslie Manor. They also delivered a craft session for the residents, helping them make Easter cards. To round things off they enjoyed afternoon tea and some chat and a game of BINGO, with prizes from a local sweetie shop.

Visits to other establishments in the Girvan Area have been planned. The girls are undertaking the activities in addition to their usual DofE Volunteering – a programme of community fundraising events for RNLI, Water Aid, McMillan and more.
