The winners of the Scottish Charity Awards 2020 have been revealed and Bridie Ashrowan, of The Broomhouse Centre/Space, was recognised as Leading Light.
Bridie headed up the build and opening of a new £3.2m community hub in late 2019 in an area of high in-work poverty. On receiving the award she said: “I would like to say how humbled I am to win this award, however, I am delighted for the people of our community and organisation, I have only been able to achieve this thanks to the totally amazing team of staff, volunteers and trustees, including the caretakers, the cleaners, and the cooks and the community, who have helped kept us open since the start of Covid-19. It is to all of them I dedicate this award.”
