Inspiring Aberdeenshire 2023 finalists

Some incredible Aberdeenshire residents and groups have been selected as finalists for this year Inspiring Aberdeenshire awards
The awards are run by Aberdeenshire Council, held once a year to celebrate and showcase the people and groups working hard in their communities to make life better for us all.

They are often people who have been volunteering for many years but receive very little other recognition. 
This year there will be awards in eight categories ranging from cultural champions, green champions and those who dedicate their time to caring for others, alongside local heroes and the Inspiring Aberdeenshire Lifetime Achievement award. 
The awards will be handed out in a live ceremony in September – hosted by Provost of Aberdeenshire Judy Whyte.

She said: “It never fails to amaze me that year after year we hear of more people being nominated, often people who have flown under the radar for a long time, but who dedicate their time to others.

"They really demonstrate the best of Aberdeenshire, that approach where true community spirit is reflected in the role we play for each other and the way we step up to support a need in our community. I think we can all learn a lot from our truly inspiring finalists."
The award categories are all on our website, along with a summary of the finalists in each category and an explanation of what makes them so inspirational. 
The winners will be announced at the end of September.
