A TRIO of adventurous young people have spoken to Dunbar Rotary Club about their exciting projects.

Caitlin Wishart and Anthony Birrell thanked the community group for sponsoring them on the Rotary Youth Leadership Award week in July.

The duo took part in five days of team-building exercises and experienced new challenges at an outdoor centre near Kirkcudbright, Dumfries and Galloway.

The two youngsters tried activities including raft-building, mountain-biking and an assault course.

Club president Elaine O’Brien presented them with certificates of attendance to mark their enthusiastic participation in the Rotary Youth Leadership Award scheme.

Robin Hamilton, chairman of youth services at the group, said: “The Rotary Club of Dunbar was delighted to support two pupils from Dunbar Grammar School on the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) experience.

“We are sure this experience will benefit both of them for their future life.”

Meanwhile, Rebecca Porteous is raising funds to pay her way to volunteering in a primary school in Thailand next year.

Rebecca, who works at the Royal Mackintosh Hotel, is keen to raise more than £6,000 to cover the cost of the trip.

Already, she has raised more than £3,500 and the Rotary club presented her with a cheque for £250.
