Saltire success for LinkLiving volunteers

We celebrated the achievements of seven of our volunteers, who between them have completed more than 2,234 hours of volunteer work.

The young volunteers were presented with certificates signed by Scottish Government Ministers at a Saltire Awards presentation at our West Bridge Mill facility in Kirkcaldy.

The Saltire Awards celebrate, recognise and reward the commitment, contribution and achievements of young volunteers between the ages of 12 and 25. They help volunteers reflect on the skills and knowledge they have gained throughout their volunteering projects.

The achievement comes during the Scottish Government’s Year of Young People campaign – a year-long event celebrating the successes and contributions of young people across Scotland.

Sarah Smith, Director of LinkLiving said: “We are so proud of our volunteers. To complete over 2,234 hours of volunteering work is an amazing achievement, and speaks volumes about their levels of dedication.

“We work with around 80 volunteers each year. They come from a range of backgrounds but they have one thing in common – they help us make a positive impact in our local communities. We look forward to working more with them as part of the Year of Young People campaign."
