The Anne Dummer Award for the Young Collector of the Year is now in its third year, and the committee of Stamp Active Network gave their unanimous approval to this year's recipient, Lynne Mitchell of Ayr. The award, in memory of Anne Dummer who did so much work for Youth Philately, is not given for the ability of the collector but more for their enthusiasm and the help that they give to other collectors.
Lynne has been collecting for the last three years, is a member of the Doonfoot School Stamp Club, as well as Kidstamps and a junior member of Raflet Stamp Club. She is an enthusiastic competition entrant and has had considerable success, but she is also keen to show her hobby to others. She has given a display to her class, shown her collection to her Brownie pack and encouraged her friends to collect as well as helping younger members in the school club.
She has helped with the Stamp Club stall at her school fete, and also helps with the organisation of the children's corner at the South West Scotland Congress, which is held at Queen Margaret's Academy, Ayr at the beginning of October each year. It is therefore fitting that it is hoped to arrange the presentation of the trophy at this year's South West Congress on Sat. 2nd October.
