Anti-inequality prize tops off a great month for EATS Rosyth

Winning an award for tackling inequality capped off a brilliant month for EATS Rosyth as the project received recognition in three exciting competitions.

At the start of June – for the third year running – we received awards at the Gardening Scotland Pallet Garden Competition, winning Gold and Silver Gilt prizes for our entries.

First prize!

Later in the month we were honoured to receive the Reducing Inequalities Award at the Fife Voluntary Action Awards – a testament to the hard work done by the team throughout the whole project as it has kept expanding and making our town a better place. We pride ourselves on the opportunities that we give everyone in Rosyth, whether it’s as volunteers, customers or otherwise, so to receive this prize was a proud moment for everyone involved.

Most recently EATS Rosyth came runner up in three categories at the Dunfermline Press Community Champions Awards: Community Champion, Charity Champion and Youth Community Champion. We were nominated in the last of these categories due to our fantastic pizza teens, who get together every Saturday evening at the Hub to cook amazing pizzas!

Of course, we will keep striving to do more in the coming months and beyond in order to keep gaining recognition and keep our good work going. The volunteers, board of directors and members of staff are committed to always doing more and serving the community as best as we possibly can.
