AN EXHIBITION showcasing the work of a group of young Bankies has gone on display.

The poster exhibition was produced by a group of 10 young people who took part in a 12 week project run by Dumbarton Area Council on Alcohol (DACA).

The workshops gave the teens a chance to learn computer design and animation skills and increase their knowledge of issues surrounding alcohol.

Nicole McNeill, 14, from Clydebank, was one of the young people to take part in the project.

She said: “I learned how to make posters and use websites and it was the first time I had done anything like this.

“I also learned stuff about alcohol which I didn’t know before and from going to this I have now started going to Y Sort It as well.”

Judy Quinn, DACA’s young person project worker, added: “We wanted the workshops to be both fun and educational and the young people definitely seemed to get a lot from them."
