A special welcome for all the heroes and guests
There is still time to nominate someone you feel deserves to be named a Highland Hero at this year’s awards.
The deadline for entries is midnight on Saturday, August 31, after which the judging panel will sift through all the worthy nominees to create a shortlist.
The finalists in each of the 14 categories will be compiled in a special supplement so that readers can vote for their favourite.
The winners will be announced during an award ceremony at the Kingsmills Hotel, Inverness on Thursday, November 7.
A separate prize will be given on the night to the Overall Highland Hero, who will be chosen from the winners by the judging panel.
All the finalists featured in the supplement will by invited as VIP guests, where they will receive a special red carpet welcome before the ceremony begins.
The shortlist VIP sponsor is Morscot Utilities, an independent energy and utilities consultancy company based in Lossiemouth.
Saira Mulholland of Morscot Utilities said: “In this day and age life is often so fast paced that many of us do not realise the immense work by organisations, and selfless acts by individuals, that are being carried out within our communities.
“The Highland Heroes awards are an opportunity for us to recognise some for the people who work tirelessly behind the scenes, giving up their time and dedicating themselves to ensuring that our communities are a better place for us all.”
As well as the award ceremony, the evening will include a sumptuous three-course dinner and spectacular music and entertainment.
Each guest will receive a welcome drink on arrival, which is sponsored by Aviemore-based housing developer Davall Developments.
Directors David Cameron and Allan Munro of Davall Developments, said: “Over the years we have been avid supporters of many local charities in the Highlands.
“The annual Highland Heroes awards is a wonderful way to show appreciation of the incredible individuals who are the unsung local heroes living in our communities.”
