ACE Winches supports Young Leader at prestigious council awards30th June 2017
Leading global deck machinery specialist, ACE Winches was delighted to present the award for “Young Leader of the Year” at the annual Inspiring Aberdeenshire celebratory event. Since 2013, the company, based in Turriff, Aberdeenshire, has supported this Aberdeenshire initiative that celebrates and recognises the best of community spirit across the region.
The award ceremony, which took place on Friday 23rd June, saw Hayley Yule, Marketing and Communications Director at ACE Winches, present the award for “Young Leader of the Year” to 17-year old school pupil, Cherry Hudson.
Alford Academy pupil, Cherry Hudson was nominated for the award due to her busy schedule and hardworking approach to her studies and extra curriculum activities. This has included volunteering at her local primary school, where she supported the primary one class, as well as securing a dance leadership qualification so that she can teach a weekly dance class at the academy. In addition to this, Cherry has maintained her part-time job, working in a local care home helping residents who suffer from dementia with their day-to-day life, all whilst sitting her Scottish Higher exams.
Hayley explained: “ACE Winches has been delighted to support this local annual event over the last four years. It is one of Aberdeenshire Council’s biggest events of the year and celebrates the achievements of residents and local communities.
“Cherry has proved to be a determined and bright young woman with a fantastic future ahead of her. The whole team at ACE Winches wish her all the very best for her continued success.”
