SUSAN Aitken, the leader of Glasgow City Council has said she is delighted to continue supporting the Inspiring City Awards.

The awards, organised by The Herald and Glasgow Chamber of Commerce in association with the People Make Glasgow brand are now in their fifth year.

Designed as a platform for Glasgow to showcase its talents, we are currently canvassing for entries from local businesses, communities and individuals that have inspired over the past year.

Ms Aitken said: “There’s never been a more exciting time to be in Glasgow. Bursting with life, energy, passion and personality, we’re undoubtedly Scotland’s creative, cultural and economic capital. Our city brand is People Make Glasgow and it’s the truth. Glasgow is ambitious, inventive, entrepreneurial and welcoming because our people and businesses are, which is why the city is delighted to be continuing its support for The Herald and Chamber of Commerce’s Inspiring City Awards for the fifth consecutive year.

“These awards provide the perfect platform to recognise those outstanding individuals and organisations that are working to make a difference at every level – from inspiring action geared at improving their local communities to enhancing the city’s reputation on the global stage across sport, education, industry, culture, the arts and the environment.”
