We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded £3,000 by Youth Philanthropy Initiative (YPI), whihc is run by The Wood Group.

The students taking part work in small teams to identify the local social service charity that they believe is best placed to make a positive contribution to the community. the winning team wins £3,000 to be awarded to the charity they chose.
A group of students from Kilchuimen Academy chose BCC as their charity and delivered a presentation to a panel of judges at the local YPI final on Thursday 6th February. We are delighted that they won the final!
