THE Evening News has been shortlisted for an award which aims to highlight the importance of local newspaper campaigns across the UK.
Our Shockingly Easy campaign is raising awareness to ensure defibrillators are installed in community sports facilities across the Lothians, as well as raising funds to help sports clubs buy the equipment.
The campaign was launched in conjunction with the family of Jamie Skinner, who died at the age of 13 whilst playing football.
Shockingly Easy is one of 37 campaigns to be shortlisted across the UK as part of Local Newspaper Week’s Making A Difference award.
