Head of jogscotland Billy Mitchell said: “It’s always a real privilege to read the nominations for our annual awards, because they contain so many wonderful stories of achievement, friendship, courage and community. These stories come in from right across the country, and sum up so much of what makes us all proud to be a part of jogscotland.

“Everyone who was nominated can feel deservedly proud, but those who made it onto the shortlists struck us as outstanding examples of individuals or groups who exemplify the very best of jogscotland.”
