Through our work with local community groups, employers, education facilities and charities we’ve met some exceptional people. The kind of people who think nothing of giving up their free time to help others, look out for the vulnerable in their community, make their area a nicer place to live, and bring a smile to others during difficult times.
We think it’s time to celebrate these people who go above and beyond. Which is why we’re launching Glasgow Credit Union’s Heart of Glasgow.
The Heart of Glasgow will be awarded throughout the year and will recognise individuals of all ages who have given their time and effort to make a positive difference in the Greater Glasgow area.
If you know someone who deserves recognition, we’d like to hear from you! It could be a friend, family member, work colleague, volunteer, teacher, pupil, or neighbour who has gone the extra mile to help others stay safe and well, improved an area, or built community spirit.
Nominations can be made by members and non-members, and the nominee doesn’t need to be a member.
To nominate someone for an award download our application form and send by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or post to our office address.
