A member of Mackie’s of Scotland has made it to the finals of the Northern Star Business Awards.

Stuart Common is one of three finalists in the Rising Star category.

The Northern Star Business Awards, organised by Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce, are held every year and recognise successful businesses across the region.

The awards reward companies in the North-east for their exceptional accomplishments across a range of fields from energy to innovation, people development to customer service.

The winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony at the AECC on Thursday, September 22, hosted this year by broadcaster and journalist Louise Minchin.

Over £6,500 was raised for local charities through the generosity of the hundreds of guests who attended last year’s event and the Chamber has chosen the five organisations that will benefit from the 2016 awards as Absafe, Children 1st, North East Sensory Service, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and Scarf.
