Original 106FM Big Breakfast show presenters Claire Stevenson and Craig Lumsden are “buzzing” to be hosting the Evening Express Aberdeen’s Champion Awards.
Aiming to highlight, celebrate and recognise acts of selflessness in the north-east communities, the awards will reward both individuals and businesses that are making a difference in these unprecedented times.
Craig thinks it’s important to reward courage and kindness people of the north-east have shown during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
He said: “Claire and I are buzzing to be hosting this year’s awards.
“It’s great that in these strange times we can still recognise those who help make this part of the world a brilliant place to live.
“It’s important when most things are having to be cancelled that we go the extra mile to reward those who always go the extra mile.
“Personally, I can’t wait for the virtual awards and I just hope the tech guys can use their wizardry to airbrush out my ‘Covid stone’!”
Run in association with Balmoral Group and Original 106FM, the Evening Express Aberdeen’s Champion Awards will take place on Thursday September 24.
A total of eight accolades will be up for grabs at the virtual ceremony.
