Sophie Dolan – Kathryn Mackenzie Make A Difference – 2019 Volunteer Awards
Sophie Dolan who has volunteered with Link Up since her early teens is one of this year’s Kathryn MacKenzie Make A Difference Award finalists.
Sophie during her time at Link Up has racked up over 500 hours of volunteering across many different projects. Whilst at school she helped set up a free and inclusive dance group for young people in Whitfield, she has supported the group to attend a variety of events throughout the year, volunteers as a Youth Ambassador for Volunteer Dundee, assists at Link Up’s Cinema Club and has helped arrange small events.
Not only has Sophie made a difference to the organisation through her commitment to different projects, but she has also become a role model to other young people. She regularly goes the extra mile providing emotional support to teenage group members and is fantastic with participants of the cinema club who have varying degrees of disabilities. She has even inspired others by posting vlogs of her volunteering experience and hosted the 2018 Dundee Inspire Awards!
Link Up believe they would not be the same without her! Good luck with your nomination Sophie!
