Aberdeen Standard Investments Suite, Richard Donald Stand, Pittodrie Stadium. Thursday 28 March 2019, from 12pm-2pm.

Alcohol & Drugs Action are delighted to announce their 2019 ‘Recovery Star Awards’.

This award ceremony is held to recognise the achievements and milestones individuals have reached in their recovery from problematic drug and/or alcohol use. It also recognises volunteers and staff who have contributed towards the achievements of others.

The event is a seated, tabled set-up with hot and cold refreshments and hot food. A well-known local personality is to compere proceedings, which will include performances from local talent. Attendance is by invitation only.

As a not-for-profit organisation, ADA are inviting partners and other interested parties to consider sponsorship to assist with costs of the event. This will cover the costs of the event itself, with any surplus directed back to support ADA recovery and volunteer activities.

Tables with 10 places are available for a minimum cost of £200, with a maximum of 2 attendees from each sponsored table cordially invited to attend. Sponsors will also be recognised within materials on the day and on social media leading up to and after the event.

Sponsors are also invited for our award categories at a minimum of £250 per award. Five categories have been selected. The sponsor will be asked to have a photograph taken with winners wishing one. Category sponsors will be recognised as above. A table and category sponsorship will be £400 (minimum).

The Award Categories are:

  • Supporting Others (someone who has invested great effort into supporting another on their journey to recovery. This may be a family member, friend or ADA volunteer.)
  • Groups & Activities (a group or activity which has had a significant positive impact supporting individuals towards recovery)
  • Achieving Personal Milestones (an individual who has overcome significant challenges and made good progress in their recovery journey)
  • Educational & Training Achievement (someone who has participated extremely well in education & training as part of their recovery)
  • Special Recognition (an ADA worker, other professional or collective who has gone ‘above and beyond’ expectations to support others in harm reduction, recovery, group work, volunteering etc)

Many of us will know someone, perhaps a colleague, friend or relative, who has experienced difficulties and wish to support their recovery. This award ceremony celebrates such efforts and underpins the very existence of services that ADA provide.

We hope you will be able to support our work and wish to do so.
