Aberdeenshire wide charity Aberdeenshire Voluntary Action who work with voluntary groups across the shire, launched their AVA Community Spirit Awards at the beginning of July to recognise Community Spirit in our villages and towns during the lockdown.

They have been overwhelmed by the response.

CEO, Dan Shaw, said: “ People have been nominating in their hundreds, the people in their community who have gone out of their way to help, support and put a smile on peoples faces during the pandemic.

"We realised early on during lockdown that there were exceptional things happening in our communities to help the more vulnerable in our villages and towns across Aberdeenshire.

"Many award recipients have been nominated multiple times showing the impact they have had on their community.

"Several of our nominations are very young showing a sense of community spirit from a young age”.

Aberdeenshire Voluntary Action want to celebrate that community spirit is stronger than ever in Aberdeenshire and would love to share images of the award winners and their certificates which will be winging their way to winners over the next week either electronically or via Royal Mail.

If you would like to be included in this please email communityspirit@avashire.org.uk with a photo with you with your certificate.

With over 200 recipients of the AVA Community Spirit Award the full list can be found in AVA’s most recent newsletter
