Winners of Scottish Fundraising Awards 2015 announced

Last week some of the best in Scottish fundraising was celebrated at the Scottish Fundraising Awards, held during the Institute of Fundraising Scotland’s annual Convention in Glasgow.
The awards, which are free to enter, are designed to recognise Scotland’s best fundraisers and celebrate their success.
Gary Kernahan, Chair of the Scottish Conference Committee, said:

“All across Scotland we have charities providing vital services that so many people are dependent on. This important work undertaken by charities is only possible thanks to the people who work so hard to raise funds.  We have some of the very best fundraisers here in Scotland and these awards will recognise and celebrate success in fundraising.”
