The Volunteer Friendly Award was designed to support, recognise and reward groups who are good at involving volunteers. Many essential services in Scotland’s communities are enhanced by volunteers. Volunteering also has a significant social value as it is increasingly being used to give excluded individuals the chance to build their confidence and skills through helping others.

Wick Youth Club is the only Youth Organisation in the whole of the UK who can boast to having a Commonwealth Baton Bearer and two Olympic Torch bearers on their committee. These three close friends: Cameron Reid, Louis Mackinnon and Andrew Sinclair have achieved this through their huge commitment to youth volunteering and have amassed hundreds of hours between them through their involvement with the Youth Club. We are very proud of them.
