LWOB is an annual charity fundraiser on behalf of the Prince’s Trust Scotland at Prestonfield House Hotel in Edinburgh courtesy of owner James Thomson OBE and  raised a whopping £706,593!

The event was attended by a host of stars, including disco legends Sister Sledge, who doesn’t remember dancing to “we are family” and “lost in music” still sounded as good today and brought back some great memories from when I was a teenager at the local disco!

Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards- 2011


Great night as usual at the Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards, to recognise the hard work and commitment of young people who have changed their lives.
This is the 5th year I have covered this event (must be doing something right) great to see all the young people and PT staff and volunteers getting a reward for all their work.

As usual I always I always keep the award winners back to set up a picture with their award, as looking up to a stage does not always make for the best pic.
And you can always rely on Rangers Manager All McCoist for a good photo opp.
Here’s All with Martin Currie Charitable Trust Young AMBASSADOR of the Year award winner, Peter Sweeney.

Double page spread in The Scotsman yesterday to highlight some of the young achievers and also a pic in today’s paper.

Well done to all the winners and finalists at the Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards.

Prestonfield House Hotel is always a superb venue to work at.

The other 2 hosts were Charley Speed and Grace Woodward from Britain’s Next Top Model, all 3 did a great job.
I had set up some lights backstage to photograph all 35 winners individually with Sarah, Charlie and Grace.
The 3 celebs were true professionals chatting and smiling with the Sky staff award winners.
