On Thursday 22nd of June we won an SCVO Scottish Charity Award in the category of Pioneering Project again for all dates-n-mates Projects. This was a people’s choice award voted for by the public.

Dates-n-Mates Renfrewshire colleagues Fiona & Raynor as well as Dates-n-Mates Glasgow Fundraising Director Michael and Dates-n-Mates National Member Malcolm, attended the ceremony at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EIC) to find out the great news and collect our trophy.

A huge well done to all other finalists and winners at both awards. We are privileged to be in the company of people doing so much inspiring work across Scotland.
