Albyn School pupils secured YPI grant of £3,000 for local charity Rainbow Rogues

Albyn School pupils have secured a YPI grant of £3,000 for local charity Rainbow Rogues.

The deserving charity, which provides support for families of pre-school children who have additional support needs and/ or disabilities, has been given the funding thanks to the efforts of S3 pupils Gemma, Goodness, Katherine, Summer and Lucie.

The much-needed funds were secured through the school’s participation in the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI). Established by The Wood Foundation, YPI is an active citizenship programme which empowers young people to make a difference in their communities.

Each school is responsible for directing a grant of £3,000 to a local charity championed by its pupils through a programme of teamwork, research, and competition. Working in groups, 15 Albyn School teams created pitches, highlighting why their chosen charity would benefit from the funds the most.

We were very impressed by the standard of presentations by all our pupils. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank YPI representatives and our judges – Albyn School Captain Magnus, founder of Repair What You Wear Rosalind Studd, and former pupil and Head of Compliance at Cornerstone Suzanne Park – who had the difficult task of choosing only one winner.
