Live Borders


Best Arts Champion - Local Authority or Cultural Trust Worker 2022

Deborah McGill

What our judges said:


The positive impact Debbie has had on the Live Borders library team and wider Scottish Borders community is very clear. She delivered a new, entirely online programme that effectively partnered with the NHS to combat mental wellbeing at a time when this has been particularly challenging to the population. Debbie sounds like a true champion of library services - well done!


Debbie’s work has made an enormous difference to her community, helping hundreds of people to be connected and benefit from creative activity during the pandemic. This is an excellent example of the difference one determined and energetic person can make.
