NS winners2Safety education charity Absafe has scooped the Outstanding Contribution to Society Award at this year’s Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce’s Northern Star Business Awards.

As the only charity in the north-east of Scotland dedicated to safety education and risk awareness, Absafe beat off stiff competition from Aberdeen Sports Village, HorseBack UK and the Bon Accord Centre to take home the coveted award.

Absafe’s marketing and corporate relations manager Laura McIntyre said: “Being nominated for an award of this calibre is a huge achievement for us, but to win is brilliant.

“Thank you to the Chamber of Commerce for its continued support, to the Absafe team and our dedicated volunteers, who blow us away with their commitment to our cause.

“We’re dedicated to providing the region with fun and engaging safety lessons that teach essential knowledge - this award is testament to our hard work and we look forward to an exciting chapter ahead.”
