Music

Collectively written poem from Wellbeing Day 2018

Love …..Respect………”I am”

Life is ultimately personal, human

Mind, body, soul, freedom.

Freedom is golden, freedom is difficult

The body needs nurtured: this will lead

to self-acceptance.

Helping, connected, unexpected light

Being comfortable with outside silence

Grounded, change,

Communication is music, should be honest.

This poem was created collectively by the group attending the Wellbeing Day on Saturday April 28th 2018. The group consisted of some of our group members past and present, some of our volunteers and some of our carer members. The task was led by Francine Dulong of BodyGossip.

YPI 2018 Final Winners

We have been very fortunate recently to have enjoyed some success through the Youth Philanthropy Initiative.

One of Peterhead Academy’s S5 teams were runners up in their school’s competition and one of our volunteers, Alison Lynch met with the team and collected a £200 donation for our charity.

Following that success, a team of S2’s from Meldrum Academy secured their school’s winning spot, and presented us with a cheque of £3000.

All the presentations were of a very high standard, so they did very well indeed.

Alison Lynch had visited the team, answering their questions and giving them details of what NEEDS(Scotland) does, and also, very importantly, how we would spend the money.

Unfortunately, Alison was unable to attend the final, so Mel Stevenson and Heather Cassie went along. They took the opportunity to model our stylish NEEDS(Scotland) hoodies, which are great for promoting our charity when we attend any awareness raising events.

We cannot thank all the schools involved and also the Youth Philanthropy Initiative for their work in this area, which not only has given us the chance to win the prize money, but also allows us to raise awareness of eating disorders in the school community and also amongst the parents of pupils.

Many thanks to all concerned, but especially the pupils.
