Forth Valley Disability Sport held their Awards night at the Stirling Albert Halls on Monday 24th February 2020. The event was a great success with over 120 in attendance. The purpose of this award ceremony is to reward and acknowledge the hard work and dedication of athletes, coaches and volunteers in the year of 2019.

Angus Whyte, FVDS Chair Person, welcomed all the guests and conducted the AGM. Our buffet was then followed by speaker Aileen Neilson, Paralympic Wheelchair Curler, and Get Out Get Active project update from Lead Officer Eva Finlayson. Graham Harvey, FVDS Branch Coordinator, then presented the awards ceremony which briefly highlighted each of the achievements of the nominees from 11 categories of awards.

“This awards evening was one of the best, credit to Forth Valley Disability Sport and all those involved” Angus Whyte, FVDS Chair.

A big thank you goes to all our award sponsors listed below and a special thank you must go to Sheridan Property Consultants and Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire Councils provosts who sponsored the evening by providing the excellent venue and buffet for all attendees.

Thanks to speaker Aileen Neilson for her inspirational and inspiring speech.

Many thanks once again to Catherine Goodfellow, Scottish Disability Sport Chair, for presenting the closing remarks.
