Nominate your hero
A Rutherglen opticians is encouraging locals to nominate their community hero in the annual Sunday Mail Great Scot Awards.
Now in its third year of sponsorship, Specsavers on Stonelaw Road is supporting the prestigious awards, dubbed the people’s Oscars, which honour the incredible achievements of ordinary people across Scotland who do extraordinary things.
Recognising individuals or groups who have shown incredible commitment to improving the lives of people in their local area, Specsavers is urging people to cast their votes online by August 25.
Rutherglen store director Peter Beaton said: “Supporting the local community is at the heart of what we do, from caring for the sight of people in the town to supporting local causes through fundraising.
“Sponsoring the community champion award is a natural extension of this and we can’t wait to see the suggestions that come in from local people.
“Nominating is really easy. All you need to do is go online and fill out the form explaining why your nominee deserves to win.”
