Two Bute teenagers were presented with Saltire Awards this week to recognise their volunteer work with a Bute community group.

Twin brothers Duncan and Craig McLean received their awards on Saturday after they completed one hundred hours towards their Ascent Award by helping Santa with his annual Grotto at the Discovery Centre.

Duncan and Craig have been volunteering with Ballochgoy Family Project since June, and have done everything from assisting with the summer playscheme, fundraising and helping at community events.

The awards were presented by Shona Edwards from Argyll Voluntary Action and Discovery Centre manager Hazel Mulholland.

Saltire Awards, designed to formally recognise the commitment and contribution of youth volunteering to voluntary organisations, are open to those aged 12-25 who want to volunteer, learn new skills and gain new experiences.

The Awards are split into four sections - The Challenge, The Approach, The Ascent and The Summit - and achievement is recognised in the form of Saltire Award certificates and Young Scot reward points.

For more information contact shona@argyllvoluntaryaction.org.uk or call Argyll Voluntary Action on 01369 700100.
