Foundation Sponsors Partnership Award

20 November 2013

Foundation Scotland was delighted to support the sixth annual Herald Society Awards which took place at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Glasgow on Wednesday the 20th of November.

The event which was organised by The Herald and hosted by radio DJ Bryan Burnett, paid tribute to the excellent work of people and organisations from the public and third sector who contribute so much to public life in Scotland.

Sponsored by Foundation Scotland, the Partnership of the Year was awarded to the charity MacMillan and Glasgow Life; a simple, yet effective collaboration. Using Glasgow libraries to increase access, MacMillan works with Glasgow Life to provide cancer information and support services, such as benefits advice and complimentary therapies.

At the moment, the service covers nineteen venues across Glasgow, with plans to expand this provision to cover all libraries in the city within the next three years.

Foundation Scotland Chief Executive Giles Ruck, who presented the Partnership Award said,”The standard of nominees for the Partnership Award was very high and reflects some outstanding examples of collaboration and best practice.”

Other winners include Glasgow based social enterprise, The Bike Station which took home the Environmental Initiative of the Year for its success in persuading commuters to leave their cars at home. New College Lanarkshire won Education Provider of the Year for its project which sees inmates from seven Scottish prisons work to produce a quality magazine covering prison life.
