BBS Visit YPI School Event


Brittle Bone Society (BBS) were delighted to be invited to attend Braeview Academy in Dundee on Rare Disease Day to raise awareness of Osteogenesis Imperfecta as part of the YPI programme.

Trustee Yvonne Grant, and Support Development Officer Coreen held a stand as part of the charity fair where over 100 x 2nd year pupils had the opportunity to talk local charities.

The Youth Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) provides an opportunity for school pupils to engage with their local community and to learn communication and research skills. They also have to present their findings to their year group at the end of the programme and the winning group receives a donation which can be given to their local charity.

We were delighted to participate and wish all the students luck with their presentations.
