A Dunbar teenager’s commitment to fundraising for the Dunbar RNLI lifeboat station has earned him a volunteering award.

Matthew Barnott (15) has clocked up over 100 hours of working in the town’s High Street souvenir shop and has been given a Saltire Award for volunteering – under a scheme set up to encourage 12-25 year olds to give some free time to help in their local communities.

Matthew is seen here receiving his certificate from Carol Raeburn, the RNLI’s youth education manager for Scotland, and looking on is his mum Sue Barnott who has been a volunteer at the shop since 2009.
