Duke of Edinburgh Awards


The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Ceremony took place last Thursday night in the Town Hall, Stornoway.

This year over 90 young people were presented with Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Certificates which is a significant achievement.

The Awards were presented by Alex Macdonald, Convener, Comhairle Nan Eilean Siar.

The Award continues to be a success in the Western Isles thanks to the number of Volunteers supporting the Young People to achieve their goal.

This Year the Angus Clinton Memorial Award - presented by Alex Macdonald - went to Karina Macaulay who supports the Bernera Open Group.

The Western Isles Duke of Edinburgh’s Award committee is supported by the Community Education Service, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar.
