MV Youth Volunteering Award Ceremony
Five young people recently became the recipients of the prestigious Gold MV Award for volunteering while participating in the Wick Players production of Mother Goose. The Gold Award is achieved when a volunteer accumulates 200 hours of volunteering which can take place over a two year period. The five young people involved with the panto had been in intensive rehearsals since August and fulfilled their required 200 hours on the 18th December. This Award is a recognised award of excellence endorsed by the Scottish Executive and the Gold award is signed by the First Minister.

The MVAward [Millennium Volunteer] was re-launched in October to encourage youth into volunteering with the community. Young people between the ages of 16-25 can register for an award and gain either a Bronze Award which is achieved after 50 hours volunteering, a Silver Award achievable after 100 hours volunteering or a Gold Award after 200 hours volunteering.

This award is a recognised certificate of achievement and a valuable addition to CVs.

You can get further information on how to register for a MV Award from Catherine at Volunteer Highland located in the Volunteer Centre, Williamson Street, Wick. Email; volhighlandcaithness@telfordhouse.com
