A boy from March has been praised by voluntary group Young People March by being placed on its honours board.
Young People March, which aims to provide a safe and cared for environment for young people, acknowledged the efforts of Billy Griffiths, who was presented with a certificate and a cheque for £50 by March Lion John Potter for his voluntary work.
The group’s honours board rewards and acknowledges one young person each year who has made the most significant development and contribution to the operation of Young People March.
The 13-year-old won this year’s accolade after helping to set up and run clubs and getting involved with staff duties.
Billy has been attending the group as a volunteer since July 2014 and volunteers twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. He is the third young person to have been placed on the honours board since its inception in 2013.
The Young People March honours board was funded by a bequest from the late Mary Buckley, who was a very active and well respected member of the March Lions; a group wishing to help the less fortunate people within the March area.
