Make a Difference Award

Tuesday 14th November 2017

Alan Graham from 1st New Monkland was presented with the Make a Difference Award by STV news stalwart and former BB member John MacKay. Alan received the national honour for helping others in his local community where he carried out in excess of 250 hours at Airdrie Foodbank whilst working towards his Queen’s Badge.

Alan, who embarked on KGVI this summer said “It’s an amazing feeling and a great honour. It came as a big surprise as it was it was a very unexpected nomination. My volunteering has given me a much clearer understanding of foodbanks and just how many people rely on them. The experience has also really helped me develop my teamwork and communication skills.”

The Make a Difference Award is open to BB young people (aged 5 – 19) who have gone an extra mile to help others. Find out more by visiting
