The second annual Reeltime Music Awards took place as part of the Newarthill charity’s recent open evening and agm.
Two very deserving young people were recognised for their outstanding efforts since becoming involved with the organisation.
Taylor High pupil Daniel Cairney, of Carfin, collected Outstanding Young Person of the Year and Cumbernauld College student Susan Kerr, of Chapelhall, was awarded Volunteer of the Year.
The winners were nominated by staff members at Reeltime Music and both were praised for their reliability, determination and exceptional service.
Marketing and evaluation officer Carol McEntegart said of Susan: “She has demonstrated an overall commitment to improving young people’s social and personal development and is well respected by the young people she works with as well as her fellow volunteers, staff and trustees.”
Youth music tutor John Gray added: “I am really happy for Daniel, he has shown reliability, vigour and determination in all of the activities and has also been a source of encouragement and inspiration to other young people.”
Daniel and Susan were presented with a framed award by Airdrie and Shotts MP Pamela Nash.
Also in attendance were Uddingston and Bellshill MSP Michael McMahon, Central Scotland list MSP Clare Adamson, Motherwell North councillor Peter Nolan and Airdrie South councillor David Fagan.
The agm itself provided the attendees and members with information on the activities of the organisation as guests were also able to receive a copy of the charity’s accounts and annual report.
Musical entertainment was also provided by young people from the Shotts Getting Better Together project, The Reeltime Rockers, and My Generation.
