Perth Concert Hall hosted the Climate Challenge Fund Awards on 12 December.
Six community-led organisations from across Scotland have been presented with a prestigious Climate Challenge Fund Award at a ceremony which took place in Perth on Wednesday 12 December.
The Climate Challenge Fund Awards were organised by environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful on behalf of the Scottish Government.
The Awards recognised the work that has been undertaken by projects supported by the Climate Challenge Fund (between 1 April 2017 and 31 March 2018) to tackle climate change in their communities. In addition, a special 'Outstanding Contribution' category celebrated projects that have made an outstanding contribution to community action on climate change over the last decade of the Fund.
The Awards Ceremony also featured inspiring speakers, locally sourced food and drinks, plus plenty of time for attendees to network and make contacts to help them in their climate action work.
There were 60 entries for the Awards, with 15 groups shortlisted. Six were crowned as being top of their categories. We are delighted to share details of the winners below.
