With around 400 of the best PR people in Scotland at the awards, Ami Small and BIGs Brian Welsh were over the moon the accept the award.
The media campaign generated significant coverage in UK regional and national press and was coordinated by Ami Small, the club Press Officer and the Greaves PR Team.
