Last night team BCDT got their gladrags and sparkly shoes on and travelled up to Edinburgh for the SCVO Scottish Charity Awards 2015 at the Assembly Rooms.
We still can’t quite believe we won the Celebrating Communities category and were all thrilled when they announced Beith Trust as the winners. Alex took to the stage for our acceptance speech and did a remarkably good job:
“Thank you very much to everybody who has nominated us and voted for us! None of the work at Beith Trust would have been possible without the hard work, commitment and enthusiasm of our volunteers, directors, staff and the fantastic support of the community. We are absolutely delighted to be here and hope everyone has a great night, thank you!”
Paul Cardwell from Third Force News says “The charity triumphed after impressing the judges with its efforts to improve the mental and physical fitness of its local community.” You can check out his article here.
We are so grateful to everyone involved in this charity – it would not have been possible without you all and this is just the first step in getting our wee town on the map. Three cheers for Beith!
