A Peterhead engineering firm has lent a helping hand to the town’s academy students.

Dales Engineering Services received a generous donation from the SS7 Broom project team, which allowed them to assist Peterhead Academy Rock Challenge team.

The cash was used to help cover costs for their recent trip to Milton Keynes, as well as any future competitions.

The Peterhead Academy Rock Challenge team came an impressive third place in the UK Finals which were held earlier this year.

Students have already started rehearsing in preparation for next year’s performance.

Rock Challenge is presented by the Be Your Best Foundation. It encourages young people to lead healthy lifestyles, and to be their best without the need for tobacco, alcohol or other substances.

Thousands of young people take part every year in the event.

Dales Engineering and Subsea 7 wish all the pupils, staff and helpers well in this year’s competition.
