Gaudio Supplies Great Scot Awards

Gaudio Awards again provided the custom trophies for the 20th annual Great Scot awards. The prestigious ceremony, held at the Glasgow Hilton, celebrates the unsung heroes and community champions of Scotland.
Stars such as Michelle McManus, Natalie Robb, Aggie MacKenzie and Ultimo boss Michelle Mone turned out to celebrate ordinary Scots who have achieved the extraordinary.

Winners on the night included actor Tony Roper, actor and director David Hayman (pictured), singer Amy Macdonald, bowler Willie Wood and business woman Jennifer Cheyne. The night's main award went to a couple who epitomise what it means to be truly Great Scots. For 30 years, May and Gerry have selflessly opened up their home to more than 150 vulnerable children.

"Dealing with Gaudio has been a pleasure. From the initial enquiry they took onboard everything we have asked for, continuing to produce designs as things changed. I feel they go the extra mile to make sure the client is entirely satisfied. The Hovercraft club of Great Britain were extremely impressed with the service and quality of the awards."
