Minister visits On the Move event
Shona Robison MSP, Minister for Public Health and Sport, provided the keynote speech at this year's Girls on the Move national training event, On the Move, which took place in February at Carronvale House, Stirlingshire.
Speaking at the event, which was attended by 35 young women from across Scotland, Shona Robison MSP highlighted the positive contributions young women involved in the project were making in their own communities and linked the programme to the wider legacy of the Commonwealth Games in 2014.
As well as workshops and training sessions at both beginner and intermediate level, the On the Move event also included a special awards ceremony for the three recipients of this year's Moving Forward Award, an award established in partnership with Sports Leaders UK.
Aisling Finnigan, Laura Kennedy and Cheryl Forbes all received awards to recognise the journeys they have been on since completing a Girls on the Move leadership course, and were celebrated as deserving and inspiring leaders. Congratulations to all three recipients. Look out for the specially produced supplement celebrating Girls on the Move leaders - coming very soon!
