Earlier this month, Beth, Lauren and Chanelle travelled to Edinburgh to represent the Create Crew kids at the launch of the book – “Cashback – Making Crime Pay”.
Sixteen projects from across Scotland contributed to the book, including our very own “Create Crew” which shows how the “Cashback” initiative takes money from criminals using the Proceeds of Crime Act and invests it back into communities.
The book was formally launched at Craigmillar Library in Edinburgh by the Cabinet Secretary for Justice, Kenny MacAskill MSP. The event brought to life the pages of the book, showcasing some of the incredible projects that are giving a host of opportunities to young people and reducing anti-social behaviour as a result.
Well done kids – you done us proud!
