Provost's Awards 2018

26th October 2018

We are delighted to announce we have been awarded the William Citizen Jaffray Civic Award by the Provost of Stirling - Mrs Christine Simpson for 'outstanding contribution to the Stirling area' at Stirling Castle this evening.

Team members Heather Hunter & Steven Coombes collected the award and have had an amazing evening! 

One of our members - Sion Barrington has also been awarded the Community Award for his outstanding local community work with us and other local good causes.

Stirling Coucil said after the awards "William Jaffray of Cambusbarron (1749-1828) was responsible for a smallpox vaccination programme that is believed to have saved the lives of thousands of people. He also won the freedom from slavery of a Caribbean woman, destined to return to the West Indies with her owner.  

The accolade that bears his name honours those who do much at their own expense for no reward. 

Acting as an emergency response team that provides everything from life-saving search and rescue services to vital community assistance during severe weather, TSAR have been an invaluable part of Stirling Council’s response network for around 16 years.

TSAR’S most senior member, Sion Barrington, was also the recipient of the community award for dedicating around 1,000 hours of annual service to the organisation and his voluntary work across West Stirlingshire."

Stuart Ballantyne, chair of Trossachs Search and Rescue, said: “It is an incredible honour to have been selected as the recipient of the William ‘Citizen’ Jaffray Award by the Provost and Baillies of Stirling.

“There are so many volunteers across the whole Stirling Council area doing remarkable work and we were humbled to hear of their unselfish commitment at the Provost's Awards.

“Our own 40 volunteers are proud to follow in the footsteps of Stirling Street Pastors, the previous winners of this award, who do remarkable work.

“We were also delighted that our most senior member, Sion Barrington, was recognised for the significant volunteering he carries out with us and other organisations in West Stirlingshire."

Having just celebrated our 20th anniversary, these awards, mean a great deal to us!
