Scotch Beef ambassador presents Young Scot Award

The Sunday Mail 2013 Young Scot Awards took place in Glasgow on Friday (19 April), with Scotch Beef ambassador Chris Capaldi presenting the health award.

The awards have been running for the past seven years, with the aim of honouring the achievements of Scotland’s young people.

Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) was this year’s sponsor of the health award and a spokesperson said: "The awards have discovered some of the most astonishing stories of bravery, courage, kindness, selflessness and creativity."

The finalists included Perthshire-based Hannah Clarke, Edinburgh-based Ellie Gordon-Woolgar and East Ayrshire’s TreMENDous Graduates.

Pleased to be sponsoring the particular award, QMS health and education coordinator Jennifer Robertson said: "QMS already undertakes a range of activities to encourage awareness of the role of red meat in good nutrition and a healthy diet and these awards enhance our ongoing work."

She added: "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 was broadcast on STV at 10pm the following Sunday.
