Last night (16th June)  saw the annual awards ceremony of Trend Aberdeen Life with Style Awards. More than 360 people attended the Gala dinner at the Ardoe House Hotel and Spa, the guests were entertained by Singing Waiters and enjoyed great food and the hosting skills of Findlay Anderson.


This year saw a record amount of entries, which the judges were really impressed by. The quality and level of entries this year from a broad spectrum of diverse businesses meant that they had a very tough time deciding the winners.

Co-head judge Ken Massie said ‘the one thing that has shone through this year has been the enthusiasm, commitment and passion for their businesses and their achievements in what are clearly very difficult and challenging market conditions.’

A huge thank you goes to our main sponsors who have helped make the event possible: Finnies The Jewellers, Stephen & George Print Group, CALA Homes, Cocoa Ooze Chocolates, Park’s Motor Group, Ardoe House Hotel and Spa, Newsline Media Ltd, Kim Dalglish Florist & A-Line Group. We would also like to thank all our award and table sponsors along with everyone who donated raffle prizes.
