Scotch Lamb PGI Backs Environment Category at Young Scot Awards

Top quality lamb from Scotland will have a high profile at the Sunday Mail Young Scot Awards 2018, when Scotch Lamb PGI will feature in the line-up of sponsors.

Scotch Lamb PGI will be sponsoring the Environment Award at the event which is being held at the Scottish Event Campus on St Andrews Day, 30 November 2018.

Described as the biggest celebration of young people in Scotland, the awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of inspirational young people across Scotland and the Environment award will go to a young person or group who is passionate about green and environmental issues and determined to make a positive difference.

The awards, which are in their 13th year, are part of a national programme of celebrations for the Year of Young People 2018 (YOYP 2018). The organisers are looking for amazing young people to be celebrated for the inspiring work they do to improve the lives of others. People across Scotland are being asked to nominate outstanding young people (11-26 years old) in their community.

Jennifer Robertson, Health and Education Manager, QMS, said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the environment category in this year’s Sunday Mail 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. We look forward to commending this year’s nominees who are making a positive impact on their communities.”

QMS undertakes a range of activities to encourage awareness of the positive environmental role of livestock production in Scotland.

Around 85% of Scotland’s agricultural area is made up of land which is unsuitable for growing cereals or vegetables but ideal for the production of top quality Scotch Lamb. Sheep farming also provides a key source of jobs in many more fragile parts of Scotland as well as making an important contribution to biodiversity and land management throughout the country.

Brendan McGinty, Editor of the Sunday Mail, said “The Young Scot Awards provide an excellent opportunity to celebrate the best in our communities. We are delighted to welcome Quality Meat Scotland back on-board as sponsors. Without our event sponsors these awards would not be possible.”
