CELEBRATE Aberdeen organisers are to move ahead with the planning of this year’s events in the hope they will go ahead as scheduled.

As a result, nominations for the third annual Celebrate Awards, not due to take place until September, have now opened.

Aimed at charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups, the awards recognise and celebrate individuals and organisations who have made an outstanding contribution to life in Aberdeen City and Shire

Morven Mackenzie, Celebrate Aberdeen founder, said:  “We’re obviously very mindful of the current situation and of the fact that these events might not take place.

“However, both events, which are run entirely by volunteers, are many months in the planning so we have decided that we will continue to organise them as normal so that they can still continue if the situation allows.

“We will of course continue to monitor the situation very closely as things are changing on a daily basis.”

This year, there are 11 award categories ranging from large and small organisation of the year, through to volunteer, staff member, fundraiser and young supporter of the year to the heart of the community award.

The awards are scheduled to take place at P&J Live in September three weeks after Celebrate Aberdeen’s August weekend.

In addition to the parade, the weekend also includes three Union Street mile races and live entertainment across the city centre.

Registration for the parade, which is scheduled to take place on August 31, remains open until the end of April.

With 130 organisations already signed up, the Celebrate Aberdeen organisers are hoping to top last year’s total number of participating groups.

Closing date for award nominations is Friday, June 19.
