Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) Project

This past term our senior pupils have been introduced to the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI).

Through which they have been researching local charities and determining which charities they think are deserving of the £3000 donation from YPI. After our final yesterday a panel of judges found that David MacDonald, Sam Graham, Neil McDowall, Sean Thomson and Craig Low representing Downfield Mains Parish Church to be the worthy recipients of the very generous cheque from YPI. We are exceedingly proud of the hard work the sixth years have put into this project and each of the groups were highly commended by the judges yesterday at the final.  The boys then visited the church straight after the final to share the good news. The money used will contribute to the running of a community café, directly benefitting those who live in the local area. Well done boys!
