Scottish Fundraising Awards 2015 winners announced

Scottish Fundraising Awards

7 October 2015

Organised by the Institute of Fundraising, the Awards, which are free to enter, present the opportunity to recognise Scotland’s best fundraisers and honour 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 have recognised and celebrated success in fundraising.”
