Plockton High School pupils have secured £3000 in a youth philanthropy scheme for a lifeline Highland charity offering bereavement support services for children and young people.

Youth Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) is an active citizenship programme which empowers young people to make a difference in their community about causes which they care about.

Through a programme of teamwork, research and competition, a year group takes part, and one team is then chosen to secure the £3000 award.

The group of S3 pupils, Kelly Lin, Katie Greville, Charlie MacVicar and Hamish MacLean, secured the £3000 for their chosen charity Crocus Highland, who provide emotional support to bereaved children and young people in the Highlands.

Crocus Highland said: "We would like to say a huge well done and thank you to a group of S3 pupils from Plockton High School who recently won the YPI process, and £3,000 for Crocus Highland!

"Congratulations to all involved! Amazing work!"

Plockton High School said: "Very proud of the effort all our S3 pupils put into their YPI journey."
