GIRVAN Academy recently met with their chosen charity to hand over their cheque for the Youth Philanthropy Initiative (YPI).

Pupils met with Seascape, a charity to help people with housing needs and presented a cheque of £3000 which they were delighted to receive.

The YPI is an active citizenship programme that raises awareness amongst young people about philanthropy and their local community. Each participating school, each year is responsible for directing a £3000 YPI grant to a local charity through a unique programme of teamwork, research and competition. The school were congratulated for their charitable work.
