Charities in South Ayrshire are being encouraged to share their successes and receive the national recognition they deserve.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon launched the Scottish Charity Awards 2020 at a reception in Edinburgh Castle for last year’s finalists and winners in recognition of the life-changing difference they make to our communities.

She said: “I see the incredible contribution that charities and the third sector make to our country on a daily basis.

“It is only right that we recognise and thank the people who dedicate themselves to helping make Scotland a better, fairer and more socially just place.

“So if you know an individual or organisation doing incredible work, please encourage them to take a look at the categories and apply for this year’s awards.”

The awards – organised by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations – feature eight categories.
