This year the award for top adult and junior citizens of the year were duly awarded to two hard-working organisations.
The awards, run by Carnoustie Community Council, were presented on Friday night in the Carnoustie branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland.
The Citizen of the Year Trophy, was awarded to the For Carnoustie Shop and picked up by managers Dave and Babs Hodgens on behalf of the trustees.
For Carnoustie is a charity shop which has since January 2012 reinvested over £40,000 of profits back into the community.
Paul Grant MBE, of MacKays’ Limited, sponsor of the event presented the award. He said: “The Carnoustie public has been extremely supportive of For Carnoustie and I’ve no doubt this will continue and I know I speak for all, when I express every good wish for the future.”
Chair of the For Carnoustie Trustees Brian Hodgens said: “It was an honour to get it although we don’t do it for that sort of thing. We get a good feeling putting the money back into the community. That’s why we do it.
“We would like to thank everyone for their support and for voting for us. We are going to run the presentation of funds on a year on year basis so hopefully we’ll have quite a bit more money in the pot to give out next June.”
The Derek Orrock Trophy for Junior Citizen of the Year was presented to the team of P6 Carlogie Primary pupils behind the successful Fairlogie Fairtrade cafe business plan.
