That the Parliament congratulates Fasque Forestry and Dunecht Estates Volunteers on winning their respective award categories at the Scottish Land & Estates’ Virtual Helping It Happen Awards 2020; notes that Fasque Forestry won the Rural Business Award for its role creating new employment in the local area and for utilising local businesses to support their work; further notes that the Dunecht Estates Volunteers group won the North East Community Champion of the Year Award after being set up at the start of the lockdown to provide essential support to the estate's older people, tenants and those within the wider local community who were self-isolating or in an at-risk group, and wishes both ventures well for the future.
