Unsung heroes honoured by Queens Cross Housing Association
Community heroes recognised at awards ceremony
Unsung community heroes were given recognition on Friday 4 November at Queens Cross Housing Association’s second Pride of Queens Cross Awards.
The winners were announced at a ceremony held at the Hilton Glasgow Grosvenor hotel as part of the association’s 40th anniversary celebrations.
Those honoured ranged from young tenants who make a difference to their local neighbourhoods to association staff who’ve dedicated their life’s work to supporting the community.
Winners included tenant scrutiny group the Tenants’ Improvement Club for working together to improve the association’s services, community stalwart Elizabeth Mount who has spent over 40 years improving the local environment, and the Queens Cross East Housing Support Team for their dedication to supporting tenants with mental ill health.
The awards were supported by sponsorship, with community regeneration specialists Keepmoat as the main sponsor. Keepmoat is currently delivering a multimillion pound investment project at the association’s multi-storey properties in the Woodside area.
Association Chief Executive Shona Stephen said:
“The event is a testament to the community pride we feel so strongly in Queens Cross.
“We’re extremely grateful to all of our finalists, winners and those who took the time to nominate.
“It was a great night with a brilliant atmosphere and a fitting celebration for our 40th anniversary.”
Eamonn McGarvey, Regional Managing Director, Keepmoat, said:
“We have a fantastic partnership with Queens Cross and have a shared vision of transforming neighbourhoods and lives in Glasgow.
“We are honoured to be the main sponsor of this year’s awards and would like to congratulate all of the worthy winners and nominees who help us to create better communities.”
