On 17 December 2015, Apex Shine Mentor, Sarah Bennett, hosted a celebration to recognise the achievements of the individuals who had completed courses in REHIS Elementary Food Preparation, and/or Community Learning and Development Awards for Personal Development and Introduction to Computer Skills. This took the form of an awards ceremony, followed by nibbles and Christmas craft activities. The event was attended by representatives from Community Learning and Development and the Healthy Living Network and was supported by the Women’s Reconnect Service who sent their best wishes and some goody bags.
The recipients are all involved with Shine Women’s Mentoring Service and the Reconnect Women’s Service in the Scottish Borders and were supported by staff across these services to complete their chosen courses. The courses were all provided free of charge by CLD, Healthy Living Network and Hawick Library Staff for those who are eager to continue their learning journey.
