Employment project up for national charity award
The Moving On employment project has been shortlisted for the prestigious Scottish Charity of the Year Award.
The award is given by the Scottish Council of Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) which is the national body representing the interests of charities in Scotland.
The award is given to one charity in Scotland annually to recognise excellence and innovation. Moving On is one of four charities shortlisted, with the winner announced at a gala dinner and awards ceremony on 16th June in Edinburgh.
Project co-ordinator Kellie Naulls said: “We are really thrilled to have been shortlisted as this award is open to all charities in Scotland. The Moving On team and board have worked hard to develop services and attract new funding to Shetland. We are looking forward to finding if we have been successful in winning the award.”
Voluntary Action Shetland’s executive officer Catherine Hughson, who manages Market House where Moving On is based, said: “I am absolutely delighted for Kellie and staff and board of Moving On. This is another testament to the dedication, enthusiasm and professionalism of the voluntary sector in Shetland and the valued contribution we make to the Shetland community.”
