A £1,000 cheque from Grampian Police was recently presented to Emma Pattinson on behalf of Strichen Youth Group by Sergeant Sean Reynolds.
The money will be used for resources, team-building activities and to finance training courses for the volunteers who help run the group.
The youngsters were delighted to receive such a generous donation, and wish to thank Sergeant Reynolds for his interest in the group and continued support.
The group is supported by Aberdeenshire Council Community Learning Development based at Mintlaw and meet on a Monday night during the school term in “The Hut” at the tennis court in Strichen from 7-9pm. All young people from P7 upwards are welcome to attend and take part in various activities.
