A volunteer focused on keeping girls involved in sport has been nominated for one of Aberdeen’s Sports Awards.
Rebekah Singer, 17, is up for Volunteer of the Year – Junior.
Rebekah said: “At the moment, the majority of my volunteering is working with the Active Girls committee.
“I run an Active Girls group at my school, Dyce Academy, with some other members and a couple of the teachers.
“I got into it by volunteering with other Active Schools groups.
“I did a sports leaders course and when I organised an Active Girls day a couple of years ago I was asked to join the committee from there.”
The group Rebekah helps run at school allows the academy’s junior girls a weekly chance to take part in whatever sporting activities they’d like.
She then, with the committee, helps organise bigger events to get more girls across Aberdeen taking part in sport – a trend she is dedicated to increasing.
Rebekah said: “It’s always something I’ve noticed and didn’t know how to make a difference.
“When the opportunity came up to join a city-wide committee dedicated to making sure girls are getting their fair shot in sport, it was something I was really eager to take on.”
The teen also gets paid to help run extra-curricular activities in primary schools as part of Active Schools.
Aberdeen’s Sports Awards will be handed out at a dinner to be held at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on October 4.
