Youth

The community group behind an active playpark in Oban and an employee of Callander Youth Project Trust are among the winners of the Scottish Charity Awards 2016.

The winners of the awards were announced at a glittering awards ceremony at the Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh on 9 July.

Shulah Allan, Convener of Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), which organises the awards, said:

Scotland is being represented at this week's Swedish Rural Parliament, one of the largest gatherings for rural development in Europe.

Bill Sturrock, a member of Angus LEADER Local Action Group, and Sarah Hyslop, Ayrshire LEADER Programme Manager, are being supported by the Scottish Rural Network to attend the event.
