Scottish Liberal Democrat candidate for Shetland Beatrice Wishart has today congratulated both Brynn Hauxwell and the Chillax group on their achievements at the YoungScot awards.
Brynn Hauxwell won the ‘Young Hero’ award while the Chillax group were shortlisted in the health and wellbeing category.
Commenting Ms Wishart said:
“In a year that has been incredibly difficult it is all the more inspiring to see people like Brynn and the Chillax group lead the way on how we can all contribute to our community. Young people in Shetland truly led the way for the rest of the country last night.
“Brynn’s challenge was awe-inspiring to see and his award last night was well deserved. I wish him all the best as he sets out on another challenge in May.
“Having identified a gap, Chillax developed their own peer support wellbeing programme and have put many hours into its evolvement. When I met Chillax I was very impressed with the programme and the group’s dedication. They also demonstrate the value of youth service work.”
