Over the recent weeks we have visited Auchmuty High School in Glenrothes to deliver talks about our charity to a various groups competing in the YPI Initiative.

The Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) is a powerful active citizen programme, empowering young people to make a difference in their communities while developing a range of skill and knowledge.

YPI is the biggest independent initiative being delivered in Scottish education. Each school is responsible for directing a grant of £3000 to a local charity championed by its students through a unique programme of teamwork, research, and competition.

During this time, the Charity Committee (Eden Jones, Sophie Thwaites, Laura Thomson, Finlay O’Neil, Jay Stewart & Shaun Harley) had noticed how regularly our staff were checking in via the visitors’ book. They decided between themselves that they wanted to raise some funds for KASP.

Eden Jones, a member of the Charity Committee, contacted KASP to ask if we could visit the school to collect the donation. It never fails to surprise us how kind people are. We were delighted to received £89.04 which we hope will help towards the cost of a Dog Therapy Programme which we hope to offer our clients.

Eden told us ‘‘we remember KASP had a stall within the school a few months ago, we then noticed how regularly KASP were visiting to deliver talks to groups of pupils explaining what the charity does. We love the fact that KASP are so involved in the community, we decided we wanted to help and created a donation tin’’.

KASP are truly thankful for all donations. Without donations from individuals and community groups, we would not be able to provide the services that we do in the communities of Fife

Thank you, Auchmuty High School!
