Thank you very much to the staff who came along to watch the YPI finals this morning and especially Allyson for her continued support of the YPI program.
All of the S2 presenting today did such a fantastic job that it made the judges decision of who would win the £3000 grant extremely hard. The presentations showed how dedicated each group was with several having raised money for their charity, how much research went into understanding their social issue and charity, as well as creative elements in several presentations including an animation which the Joshua Nolan Foundation will now include on their website when it is developed.
In the end, Beth, Amy, Cerys, Jamie and Isabella in 2B1 secured the £3000 for their charity Liberton Vaulters. They demonstrated in-depth knowledge of their charity, how it benefits people with both their mental health and social skills, and the difficulties the charity faced due to Covid. As a result of the grant, the charity is one step closer to achieving their five year plan of expanding by buying a new horse who can help provide therapy through vaulting and reaching more in need.
