A driving force behind Ellon’s Meadows sports complex was among dozens of volunteers from across Aberdeenshire, recognised for their ‘selfless spirit’.
Kevin Wright attended a recent reception at the council’s Woodhill House headquarters, hosted by Provost Jill Webster.
Kevin, who was nominated by Ellon and District Councillor Gillian Owen, was described as a “leading light” at the Meadows.
He was praised for displaying great vision for the complex, while serving Ellon Thistle FC and Ellon United on the committee.
A keen golfer, Kevin was also seen as a progressive captain at Newburgh Golf Club.
Provost Webster said the volunteers provided a vital role in their communities, with their personal touch ensuring that those who might otherwise feel isolated have the opportunity to get involved in community activities.
Each of them received a certificate in recognition of their efforts.
