Jade-Lauren, an HNC 3D interior design student from Kirkcaldy, said: “The scholarship really means a lot.

"It will benefit me going forward because I unfortunately had a serious decline in health that has left my mobility affected.

“The award will allow me to pay towards driving lessons that specialise in the type of vehicle I can drive to help give me back my independence.

"This will help me get to the college much easier and get my son to nursery, both of which will be big steps for me.”
