Flying the flag for care-experienced young people
Champions Board Member Beth Catchpole, who is flying out to Belfast with the other Champs on Wednesday, says:
‘I’m over the moon. I’m excited to be going on a plane for the first time and I’m excited about representing the Champs Board and meeting someone as important as the Mayor.’
East Lothian Education and Children’s Services Cabinet Member Shamin Akhtar added:
‘I am delighted that so many of the Champs Board and FAMILY, our looked-after young people’s club, are able to take part. Eleven people will be going to Belfast or Glasgow to talk about their experiences and what we are doing here. Our young people are really flying the flag for East Lothian and for Scotland and I would like to thank them for doing this and hope they have a really good time too.’
