A Fife voluntary worker has been shortlisted for a top charity award.
Brian Robertson, who has been instrumental in the work to upgrade Silverburn Park in Leven, is through to the final of the Scottish Charity Awards (SCA), run annually to celebrate the best of Scotland’s voluntary sector.
Mr Robertson works for Fife Employment Access Trust (Feat), which helps people with mental health problems find and sustain work.
He has been recognised the the Terrific Trustee category and the charity is urging as many people as possible to vote for him.
Brian said: “I am thrilled to be shortlisted for my work for Feat and Silverburn Park as I feel that now more than ever it is vital that we raise the profile of the project so that it can continue to support people in a time when everybody’s mental health is susceptible and lack of employment a reality for all.”
Winners will be announced on the SCA website on September 25, after a ceremony planned for June had to be cancelled due to lockdown rules.
Anna Fowlie, chief executive of the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations, which runs the awards, said much of the work being celebrated this year predates the pandemic.
“Scotland’s voluntary sector has never been more needed and will be essential to Scotland’s recovery,” she said.
