Oh what a night!

14 companies recognised

Supplier Awards gv 2020

Our Supplier Excellence Awards at the Radisson Hotel in Glasgow last night were a glitzy and glamourous affair, with 14 companies recognised for good practice, innovation and excellence in providing goods and services to the public sector.  

MC for the night, Scottish broadcaster, Dougie Vipond, welcomed more than 300 guests from Scottish councils, companies and third sector organisations, as well as suppliers from further afield.

There were eight award categories, but judges had the discretion to make two awards – one for a large organisation and one for a small company – in each category.

And the winners are:

Highly Commended

Everwarm, Hey Girls CIC and Scotland’s Bravest Manufacturing Company were Highly Commended for the high standard of their entries.

The event also raised money for a good cause. A raffle offering prizes generously donated by a range of companies and suppliers raised £3,637 for the charity Brightest star, which supports families through the loss of a child, grandchild or sibling.
