A modern apprentice from Argyll and Bute Council has won the coveted Scottish Training Federation (STF) Apprentice of the Year Award.
Steven Simpson from Dunoon and Chris Cupples from Lochgilphead were two of only three apprentices shortlisted for the award, with Steven going on to be crowed the winner at a prestigious awards ceremony last week.
Steven works with the council’s education learning technologies team based in Argyll House, Dunoon, whilst Chris is an HGV mechanic. Full story in tomorrow's paper.
Back in August we reported how a ten-year-old Blairmore girl was so touched by a charity’s tv appeal that she had decided to do something to help them.
Rhiyanna Stevely had been watching television when she saw an ad for the charity Water Aid. She was so upset to see children in other countries having to drink dirty water that she decided to do something about it.
Rhiyanna said at the time: “We just turn on the tap and clean water comes out any time we want. We take it for granted, but these children had only dirty water.”
