Scotch Beef Supports Inspirational Young Scots

Scotch Beef PGI will be high profile at the Young Scot Awards this month with Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) sponsoring the volunteering category.   A number of inspiring young Scots are in the frame to win the award at the ceremony to be held in the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on Wednesday 27 April. The finalists, who are all 26 years old or under, include Edinburgh-based Alistair Stewart, Alice Bowman from Blairgowrie and Natasha Kerr from Kilmarnock who have all made a real difference to their communities through their dedication and hard work.    The Young Scot Awards have been honouring the achievements of the country’s incredible young people for the past ten years. The awards have discovered some of the most astonishing stories of bravery, courage, kindness, selflessness and creativity.   The volunteering award celebrates those special people who give up their time and energy free of charge to help other people. This little bit of effort can make a huge difference to many causes.   Jenni Henderson, Quality Meat Scotland’s Health and Education Executive, said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the volunteering category in this year’s Young Scot Awards. Each year we are amazed by the positive achievements of Scotland’s young people and to be able to celebrate with them is incredible.   “QMS undertakes a range of activities with young people in Scotland to encourage awareness of the role of red meat in good nutrition and a healthy diet and these awards certainly enhance our ongoing work.   “All of the finalists are truly inspirational. Their commitment and dedication in making a positive impact on the lives of others and making a real difference in their local community is to be commended.”   The event will take place in Edinburgh on 27 April at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. Scotch Beef will feature prominently at the awards ceremony, being served to over 500 dinner attendees.
