Campbeltown has its fair share of unsung heroes, particularly those who stepped up to help others in the last year.

In a bid to shine a spotlight on those who have gone above and beyond for the community throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Campbeltown woman Cheryl Brown has created the town’s very own Pride of Britain Awards-style honours scheme.

The Spirit of Campbeltown Awards will recognise the efforts of individuals across 12 categories:

  • Service with a Smile
  • Young Person of the Year
  • Community Group
  • Role Model of the Year
  • Exceptional Achievement of the Year
  • Business of the Year
  • Volunteer of the Year
  • Helping Hand Award
  • Educator of the Year
  • Tradesman of the Year
  • Keyworker of the Year
  • The Heart of the Community Award

The awards are being run through Cheryl’s Facebook page, where she will list full details of the different categories over four days next week.

People will be able to nominate just one person for each category and must include a message to say why the nominee deserves to win the award.

Nominations will be considered for a week after the categories have been listed, after which the worthy nominees, semi-finalists and eventually the winners will be revealed.

Keep an eye on Cheryl’s Facebook page for more information.
