The pupils of Peterhead Central School have a freshly painted and decorated playground thanks to the efforts of Peterhead’s Prince’s Trust Team 33.
Each Prince’s Trust programme, which runs for 12 weeks at a time, must decide on a project that will benefit their local community.
Once a project has been chosen, the team must then raise the necessary funds to ensure the project can be completed within the allotted three-week timescale.
Team 33 took part in a 20 mile walk to Mintlaw and back and a bag pack held at the local Morrisons Supermarket which helped raise just over £1500.
The team would like to thank all the local businesses and local people for their generous donations and support, which enabled them to complete the community project.
A special mention to Arcaro Arts who helped and supported the team throughout the project.
Central School Head Teacher, Mrs Henderson, said: “Everyone has thoroughly enjoyed having the Prince’s Trust in the School; they have done a great job redecorating the Playground.
“The children at Central love the new vibrant colours and especially like the boards on the walls with all the different flags reflecting the different nationalities.
“We can’t thank the Prince’s Trust enough for all their hard work, it’s been fabulous”
The Prince’s Trust Team programme, delivered in Aberdeenshire by Aberdeen Foyer, is a 12 week self development programme for 16-25 year olds, offering a two week work experience placement, community projects, a week long residential and the opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications.
The next team will commence on September 22nd, 2014 and anyone interested in taking part can contact the team leader, Kevin Warrander on 07930605887 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
