At the heart of Orkney’s community, West Mainland Award Group stop at nothing to give a helping hand.
Having launched in late 2012, the group of 11 to 19 year olds is now home to 20 members who are all involved in making a positive difference in and around Orkney with their work with both young and old.
Netball, Drama, Holiday Clubs, Fun Days and Discos are all a part of the work for younger children in the Community. They’re also helping mums by raising money for a new play park, planting trees in reclaimed land and raising money for Children in Need.
