Friday round up

Busy, busy, busy. That’s the vibe around the office this week again. Our support staff have been out and about in the community supporting women, children and young people and the office has been busy with calls and visitors.

Our Community Engagement Worker had the privilege of attending not one, but two YPI finals at local secondary schools. On Wednesday Viv went along to Stranraer Academy to watch the final with one group representing Wigtownshire Women’s Aid. On Thursday it was the young people from Douglas Ewart High Schools turn, again with one group representing Wigtownshire Women’s Aid. The young people from both schools did us and themselves proud but we were unlucky this time. All credit to all the young people who took part and especially those who made it to the final, the level of work produced was fantastic and the judges faced a difficult task of choosing a winner in each school. Well done to Apex (Stranraer) and Newton Stewart Men’s Shed, the £3000 prize will help both groups immensely.
