BOOM! Young Heroes Honoured at Celebrate Success in Scotland
The spotlight was brightly on our young people at this year’s Celebrate Success Awards in Scotland. Hosted by DJ and Trust Ambassador, Grant Stott, the event saw a packed audience of 500 guests out in support of our 22 incredible finalists.
Dressed up in their best clobber, guests enjoyed the grand surroundings of the iconic venue, The Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh. It may be best known for hosting world famous Edinburgh Festival events but we thought this was most inspirational show it has ever seen.
There were a few familiar faces amongst the crowd - presenting the perfect selfie moment! Still Game’s actor Sanjeev Kohli, Scottish Wrestler Grado, Rugby Scottish Union player Finn Russell, Taggart Blythe Duff and Miss Scotland Mhairi Fergusson, all joined us.
But it was our finalists who were the real stars of the night. In true superhero style, they had our audience at the edge of their seats, moved to tears and cheering at their life-changing successes.
Guests were treated to a special message from a firm Scottish favourite and BAFTA award-winner, Gary Tank Commander. And in true Gary style, he got the crowed in fits of laughter...“Cheesy pasta” anyone?
And there was entertainment from the incredible singer/songwriter Zoe Bestel. We supported her a few years ago to help her buy equipment and record her music. She is set for big things – watch this space!
Pow! We can’t believe it’s over for another year. Well done to all our ‘superhero’ finalists, everyone at The Trust is so proud of you.
A special thanks to all our champions and sponsors, and partners across Scotland. Your support helps us change 9,000 young lives each year in Scotland.
