Youth Philanthropy Initiative
Our Youth & Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) Final took place on Thursday 8 June 2023 with 5 charity groups:
- Samaritans of Dunfermline
- Fife Young Carers
- Dunfermline Food Bank
- Fife Street Pastors
- Shiresmill Therapy Riding Centre
Our final represented the culmination of a tremendous amount of pupil work that has taken place in classes from February through to June. Our finalist groups have all undertaken volunteering, fundraising and awareness raising projects for their charities.
We are delighted that each of our runner-up charities will receive a generous donation of £250 from the Rotary Club of Dunfermline.
Our 2023 winners selected Shiresmill Therapy Riding Centre as their chosen charity, which will receive a grant of £3000 from The Wood Foundation.
The pupils have worked tirelessly over the last few months to engage with their charity, volunteering their time and really get to know the charity and many of the people they support through their valuable work. Their fundraising efforts have been amazing and the girls have shown a real passion for supporting this cause.
We are incredibly proud of the effort and commitment pupils have shown throughout the YPI programme this year. It has been amazing to see our pupils empowered to make a real difference in their local community.
