Thank you to our local heroes

At STV, we are proud to support organisations across Scotland

Over 100 small Scottish businesses and charities have appeared for free in our Local Lifeline campaign, which was introduced to shine a light on local heroes during the COVID-19 pandemic.

From football clubs delivering prescriptions and walking dogs, an engineering company donating face masks and a zoo bringing their experience online for kids to enjoy – the campaign has truly marked the community spirit across Scotland.

As the campaign came to a close, some of the organisations  featured thanked the public for their support during this period.

More than £900k of airtime on our broadcast channel was gifted, along with £40k of Video on Demand advertising on the STV Player.

Here’s a small flavour of the goodness displayed across the country and celebrated on air and online:

  • Eusebi’s restaurant in Glasgow donated meals to charity, Kindness.
  • Jim Reid Vehicle Sales provided cars to NERV charity for vital NHS deliveries.
  • Cake Mamma made more than 2000 homemade laundry bags for NHS scrubs.
  • Barratt Developments Scotland donated over 2300 PPE items and 44 defibrillators to hospitals across Scotland.
  • Barra Football Club helped offer free delivery services on prescriptions and essentials.
  • Carron to Mumbai provided free meals to the NHS and elderly.
  • Kirkjuvagr Gin Orkney donated hand sanitiser to Orkney RNLI.
  • Bruntsfield Hotel Edinburgh offered free rooms to NHS staff.
  • Clarity Mortgage Solutions offered free advice on mortgage holidays.
