Scotwest Member Catherine Mulholland nominated Joe Mulholland for a Scotwest 25th Anniversary Community Award and we were delighted to present him with the award of £400 in recognition of his tireless charity work in the local community and across Lanarkshire.

Joe was instrumental in developing the Bothwell Scarecrow Festival, an  annual event benefiting the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.  He also works with local schools and businesses to raise funds for local charities and created a sensory garden in Bothwell for children with sensory or learning impairments.

On being presented with the award, Joe  said “I’m blown away at being nominated for this award. The committee of volunteers for the Scarecrow Festival will be able to put these funds to where they are most needed to benefit the charities we support.”

Scotwest CEO Kenny MacLeod said “We are absolutely delighted to recognise someone as hardworking as Joe with a Community Award and his I would like to thank our member Catherine for taking the time to nominate Joe for the award. We look forward to seeing how the award will be used for next year’s festival!”
