Young Enterprise Ayrshire Awards 2012
After a busy day on the campaign trail I took some time out last night to attend the Young Enterprise Ayrshire Awards.
Listening to the young people who had worked so had and spent a lot of time developing their products was truly inspirational. East Ayrshire was strongly represented by a number of academies and Kilmarnock College.
I must say although I was there as a spectator I unexpectedly won a prize, drum roll, a fitness DVD from the YETI company at James Hamilton Academy. So a big thank you to them for the prize, I will get onto it after the election!
The night wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for the generosity of our Ayrshire businesses so I wanted to say thank you to them for investing in our young people. Oh and cheers to the guys at Cann Print who very kindly took me as their guest to the event. Cann Print is a great Ayrshire family business and most importantly its based in Crookedholm, so it is at the heart of our community.
