Vote for PEEK in the Scottish Charity Awards
PEEK have been shortlisted for a national charity award.
Run annually by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), the Scottish Charity Awards celebrate the best of Scotland’s voluntary sector.
This year’s shortlist includes 47 individuals and organisations from charities and voluntary groups across the country. While a judging panel will determine the winners under nine distinct categories, members of the public can have their say by voting for their favourite overall entry in the People’s Choice Award – by visiting scvo.scot/vote – before 5pm on Friday 27 August 2021.
PEEK has been recognised as a finalist in the Pioneering Project category and are encouraging everyone in Glasgow to vote for us.
Our team has continued to support Glasgow communities throughout lockdown – reaching out, offering a helping hand, a shoulder to lean on and a listening ear. Through our PEEKACHEW mobile food truck, the team delivered the equivalent of 353,891 healthy meals to over 3,000 children and young people across Glasgow experiencing poverty, inequality and trauma.
The full list of finalists can be found on the SCVO website.
Winners will be announced on 1 October in an online ceremony so that all finalists and attendees who wish to attend are still able to join the celebrations in a safe way, regardless of lockdown restrictions.
Anna Fowlie, Chief Executive of SCVO, said: “At SCVO we know that fantastic work is going on all the time and we are delighted to celebrate these achievements and successes through the Scottish Charity Awards. We had a record-breaking number of entries this year and each one demonstrated just how well the voluntary sector has responded and adapted to changes and restrictions over the past 12 months, which made shortlisting all the more difficult. Our 47 finalists showcase just how diverse our voluntary sector is and highlight the fantastic work that has been going on across the country during the coronavirus pandemic. The Awards are a great way of celebrating and recognising the people and organisations who make our voluntary sector a crucial part of every part of life in Scotland. Our finalists are fantastic and I would encourage everyone to support their favourite by voting in the People’s Choice Award.
