Finn has been a commited volutneer since 2017 when he bacame a volunteer with Skyran moon. Giving his time freely with enthusisam has been a great asset to various voluntary organisations throughout Orkney including the Parliamentory Office, Orkney Active, and most recently, Orkney Seafarers.

When asked why he volutneered he said:

“Volunteering appeared somewhat by accident…, the experience was frankly brilliant. The human-facing roles I performed markedly boosted my confidence as a result. “

Josie Izzard, Orkney Seafarers' Charity Shop Manager said,

“Finn is a inspiring young man, He has been volunteering at the Orkney Seafarers' Charity Shop over the summer months. We have found Finn to be diligent and meticulous in every task he has been set. Finn has interacted with staff and customers with ease.”

Laura Leonard, Youth Development Worker at VAO commented

“Achievnig 500 hour of volutneering in 2 years shows outstanding commitment and wilingness, Finn should be very proud of himself. We wish him all the best in the future”

Working in partnership with the Pickaquoy Centre to reward young people for their efforts in our community is a real bonus to the Saltire Awards programme here in Orkney and a great way to say ‘thank you!’”
