Jo praises skaters over BBC filming

Members of KSI have visited Westminster to receive funding awards

Jo Swinson has taken part in a programme for BBC Learning Zone on young people and campaigning. The programme focused on the fundraising efforts of members of Kirkintilloch Skatepark Initiative.

Commenting, Jo said:

“By going out and raising the funds needed for their new skatepark, the young people in KSI have achieved something really extraordinary. They were the obvious choice for a programme looking at what routes are open to young people seeking to campaign for a positive change in their community.

“From the skaters at KSI to the members of Youth Cafes in Milngavie and Bishopbriggs, East Dunbartonshire is lucky to have such an active generation of young people. They should be given every support to take up causes and campaigns that they feel passionately about.”
