Your chance to shine

Scottish Big Lottery Fund projects have the chance to compete with organisations from across the third and public sectors to be recognised as Scotland’s best as the Herald Society Awards 2012 opens to entries today (6 July).

On 2 November past winners, this year’s nominees and groups from across the third and public sectors will come together to celebrate the Herald Society Awards & Ideas Exchange in Glasgow. More information on how to enter and be there is available here.

Over the past four years The Herald Society Awards have become a landmark event and the added dimension of the Ideas Exchange gives a greater opportunity to learn from those groups and individuals that have been singled out for their excellence in the past and to hear from experts on how to deal with the challenges Scottish society continues to face.

Big Lottery Fund Scotland Director, Jackie Killeen said: “The Big Lottery Fund is again delighted to be working in partnership with The Herald for 2012’s Herald Society Awards and Ideas Exchange

“The Ideas Exchange conference offers groups from across the country the chance to come together with a common purpose and learn more from each other while the Awards are a celebration and recognition of those who are undertaking some of the most effective or pioneering practice in their work.

“In these difficult times learning from one another and sharing new or proven approaches can make all the difference to groups and organisations, no matter if they are a small voluntary project or a large public sector employer. That’s what the Herald Society Awards and Ideas Exchange is all about.”
