More than 400 of the most inspirational people in Glasgow gathered at the Glasgow Marriott Hotel on Thursday, September 6 for a gala awards ceremony.

The PEOPLE MAKE GLASGOW award was presented to Clare Cannon, who has made it her mission to give something back to the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice, which looked after her mother before she passed away.
