For decades George has been saving lives on the River Clyde with the Glasgow Humane Society. According to one of his several nominees, he’s a shining light who “lives, works and sleeps for the community of Glasgow by ensuring safety on Glasgow’s waterways”.

Peter O’Hara suffered severe injuries in conflict, spent three years in hospital and was told he would never walk again. Two and a half years later, Peter was transferred to a rehab ward and began walking. He raised two children single-handedly in Kilsyth and encouraged them to take up sport, teaching his son to become the Scottish number one for his age group. Peter has dedicated much of his life to squash, offering his time six days a week and coaching the sport to all ages for over 30 years.

24 months ago Paula admitted she was “unfit and slow-paced by choice; [a] clumsy buffoon by design”. She could never find a sport to fully suit her personal skill-base of “tumbling, tripping and tea-making”. With the XX Commonwealth Games on the horizon and inspired by the Olympics and Paralympic Games, Paula decided to make a massive change. For the next two years she promised to sample each of the 17 sports featuring in the Glasgow 2014 programme, and has gone through with her promise.
