Wick Youth Club awarded the 'Volunteer Friendly Award'

Posted by Wick Youth Club on January 24, 2015 at 5:20 AM Comments comments (38)

Wick Youth Club has recently been awarded the 'Volunteer Friendly Award' which 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.

A Huge Thank You

A huge thank you to all those who turned out to support us at the Rosebank Playing Fields for our Easter Egg Hunt.

Over 70 children turned up with their parents and in total we gave out 40 easter prizes to those who entered bonnets and eggs and all those who found easter eggs with a prize ticket inside in the egg hunt.

A special thank you too, to the Easter Bunny who made lots of little people happy, Hallie Bremner for officially opening our Crazy Golf and the sun for shining brightly.

We would like to thank Johnson Controls at Dounreay, The Community Payback Team and A&W Sinclair for helping to refurbish the outdated crazy golf course.

We really do appreciate your support and hope that you will all continue to use the Rosebank Playing Fields in the months ahead.

Our next event is a Fun Day on 11th July, the day of the Queen's Baton Relay.



Cameron Reid, chairperson, chosen as baton bearer for Wick for the Commonwealth Games

Congratulations to Cameron Reid, chairperson at Wick Youth Club who has been chosen as a baton bearer for the Commonwealth Games when the baton will be in Wick on 11th July. Well done Cameron we're really proud of you.


Cameron follows in the footsteps of two other members of the Youth Club, Louis Mackinnon and Andrew Sinclair who were both Olympic Torch bearers in 2012. All three were nominated for the immense amount of volunteering they put in at Wick Youth Club and to youth work in general.


So for all young people out there, it just goes to show volunteering can be rewarding in more ways than one and it looks brilliant on your CV.


Well done again Cameron.

Wick Youth Club are delighted to be associated with the Indigos who played their first gig last night at the Francis Street Club as part of a Variety Night in aid of the charity, CLIC Sargent.

It's only a few weeks since they started from scratch, practising in the Youth Club recording studio and look at them now.

A brilliant debut performance by all accounts.

Well done lads and here's to many more appearances.

Posted by Wick Youth Club on August 27, 2013 at 8:05 AM Comments comments (0)

On Thursday 5th September 2013, Wick Youth Club will be holding a SPACE EVENING when we will be visited by former American astronaut, Duane Carey who piloted a 2002 mission onboard the space shuttle Columbia to upgrade the Hubble Space Telescope. The astronaut spent ten days in space orbiting the earth 165 times and travelled over 3.9 million miles on what was to be Columbia's last complete mission.

Many parents will have heard all about Duane from their children as he has visited local schools before. Now is the time for you to come along with your children and meet the man for yourself. Duane will be giving a talk on his humble beginnings growing up in housing projects of St Paul in Minnesota in a one parent family. He will then discus his education, his United States Air Force career and his training and jounrey to the Hubble Space Telescope as a Space Shuttle Pilot.

5th September 2013 at Wick Youth Club from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. A night for all the family to enjoy..
