MP calls for charity award nominations
Banff and Buchan MP David Duguid has called on constituents to help nominate a local charity to represent the area in the 2020 Scottish Charity Awards.
The Scottish Conservative MP has encouraged local residents to put forward suggestions of which organisation or individual is worthy of recognition.
MPs across the country are asked to nominate one contender from their constituency by January 31.
The winner will be announced at a ceremony in Edinburgh in June.
Encouraging entries Mr Duguid said: “I have a few ideas of my own but I want this nomination to truly reflect the views of my constituents.
“That’s why I have asked local people to put forward a charity or an individual who does charity work that deserves recognition.
“Anyone wishing to do so should provide a brief description of why the charity or person concerned is worthy of consideration for these national awards.
“There are so many people who do fantastic, selfless work in our local communities.
"They deserve to be recognised for that effort.”
There are eight categories in which to nominate a charity or individual:
• Cracking campaign: for a strong awareness or fundraising campaign. • Charity champion: for someone who has demonstrated great dedication to a cause. • Pioneering project: for an innovative project that has made a huge difference. • Leading light: for an employee whose dedication has reaped rewards for their organisation. • Celebrating communities: for an outstanding grassroots or community initiative. • Terrific trustee: for a board member who really excels. • Demonstrating digital: for a groundbreaking digital organisation or project. • Charity of the year: for an organisation that has had an exception year.
