International Beverage’s Spirit of Our Community Awards are back!
Celebrating and rewarding the people and organisations working hard to make a difference to others in their local community, the Spirit of Our Community Awards are back and bigger than ever following the success of last year’s competition.
Spirit of Our Community Awards 2022 Winners
The inaugural Spirit of Our Community Awards were won by GlenboigLarder@BHS: a new sustainable community resource providing subsidised food shopping to anyone in the Coatbridge area experiencing food poverty, and to do so with dignity. Known as ‘The Larder’, this innovative new store, set up jointly by community health charity Glenboig Development Trust and Buchanan High Additional Support Needs School, received the top prize of £10,000.
