Going the extra mile for a Spirit of the Community Award
Venture Scotland is thrilled to be one of fifteen community groups in Scotland awarded a share of £80,000 through the Clydesdale Bank Spirit of the Community Awards to recognise the important role we play in the local community. The £5,000 award will be used to boost our programme in Glasgow which helps people into employment.
Clydesdale Bank announced the substantial donations to voluntary groups at an awards ceremony attended by Donna Hegarty, our Programme Manager in Glasgow, on 27 June 2017 which recognised charities and not for profit organisations going the extra mile.
Debbie Crosbie, Group Chief Operating Officer at Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks and Chair of the Yorkshire and Clydesdale Bank Foundation, said: “Clydesdale Bank’s Spirit of the Community Awards aim to recognise and support the vital contribution that voluntary and charitable projects make to their local communities. This is our opportunity to say thank you to the incredible community groups across Scotland for the inspiring work they undertake.
“All of the successful organisations are extremely deserving winners which have been recognised for their role in their local communities with these awards from Clydesdale Bank.”
