The fantastic sum of £895.48 has been raised by South Ayrshire Council's Modern Apprentices for the Nepal Earthquake Disaster fund. 

The apprentices, carried out a variety of fundraising activities including a car washing event, a sponsored beach walk, a 5-a-side football tournament, a sponsored silence, raffle and car boot sale. They also put themselves up as a prize by offering their services as an assistant for the day.

Councillor John Hampton, Youth Champion for the Council said: "What these Modern Apprentices have achieved is very inspiring. Every Modern Apprentice that took part is a credit to themselves, their work colleagues and the Council and they have chosen to donate to a very worthy cause."

Councillor Robin Reid, Resources and Performance Portfolio Holder for the Council said "During the challenge, our apprentices demonstrated their hard work and dedication to the task which I am sure will stand them in very good stead for the future….well done"

Modern Apprentice Danielle Boyle took part in the fundraising: "As a team we thought that fundraising for Nepal would be a good idea as the earthquake caused lots of damage and changed people's lives…we really wanted to help them".
