Room 13 Studios, based in Caol, has received a grant of £2,000 from the STV Children’s Appeal, which supports children and young people affected by poverty in the Highlands.

Room 13 Studios promotes arts, creativity and enterprise and is accessible to children and young people throughout Lochaber.

Children and young adults who participate develop creative, practical and organisational skills, and benefit from improved self-awareness, confidence and motivation, as they learn that arts and enterprise go hand-in-hand.

Richard Bracken, Artist-in-Residence at Room 13 Studios, commented:  ‘It’s fantastic that Room 13 Studios is to be the recipient of an award from STV Children’s Appeal.

‘We rely on awards and donations to boost our studio enterprise and help keep Room 13 free and open to all.’
