Well done to all the young people getting through to the YPI Scotland (Youth Philanthropy Initiative) final yesterday at Armadale Academy. It was a privilege to come along and see all the young people talking so passionately about their chosen charities. The atmosphere was tense as it was a tough task to present in a big lecture theatre to a panel of judges and a large audience – a huge achievement for all the young people!

A special thank you to the team, Calum, Chelsi, Lois, and Lilly, representing the School Bank West Lothian, you did us proud! It was a pleasure for Abbie (our Project Worker) to work with this lovely team of young people helping to spread the word about our service. 👏

It was lovely to hear about the fantastic work of the other charities being represented: Armadale Shed, Ponies Help Children, Cyrenians OPAL – Older People, Active Lives and of course congratulations to the worthy winners The Larder. 👏👏👏👏👏👏
