Youth from Scotland Donate to Homeless Charity, 'Somebody Cares'

A Regional Youth Day at the Aberdeen meeting house of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints took place recently which was organised by youth leaders throughout Scotland.   The 105 young men and women, aged between 14 and 18 years, came from Thurso, Dundee, Edinburgh, Paisley, Glasgow and Aberdeen with 31 leaders in attendance. 

The day included service projects for Aberdeen City Council with each youth  bringing a can of food to be donated to the charity "Somebody Cares" who feed and provide for the homeless in Aberdeen.  Mr Brian Taylor, a representative from the charity, came along to receive the donations. 

Team building exercises, including First Aid, self defence training, wall climbing, and crafts took place in the afternoon with the day finishing with a dance in the evening. 

Ivan Williamson of the Bridge of Don congregation made a massive pile of pancakes as part of breakfast on the morning of the event, using 12lbs of flour, 3lbs of sugar and 28 eggs, which was enjoyed by all.
