The Drum Scottish Event Awards took place last night at the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow.
The Arnold Clark events team has been awarded the prize for Events Sponsorship of the Year.
The Event Sponsorship of the Year accolade was handed over for the hard work the team has put in to sponsor the Kiltwalk. Support from Arnold Clark went so much further than simply writing a cheque, and included the chance to win a car at each of the four walks. From holding a Kiltwalk party at head office to being there at the finish line of the walks, this hands-on sponsorship effort quickly gained momentum, engaged staff and inspired a marathon effort to maximise fundraising across the Group.
Head of Communications Lee-Ann Edison said,
‘The team has done a fantastic job in making the sponsorship of the Kiltwalk what it is. I’m proud of the effort and hard work they have put in and I’m glad it’s been rewarded. The partnership with the Kiltwalk has been tremendous. The work they do for Scottish charities is extensive and the fundraising for 2017 has exceeded previous years. We’re proud to be a part of it.’
Our events team, part of the Communications department, delivers a host of events, both internal and external. Made up of just four hard-working, dedicated staff, they do everything from high-profile charity sponsorship, such as the Kiltwalk and Pride parades to smaller internal events.
