Jambo Radio Scotland Receives Community Organisation of the Year Award at the Black Scottish Awards

In a celebration of the achievements and contributions made by individuals and organisations within the Black community of Scotland, the Black Scottish Awards recognised Jambo Radio Scotland as the Community Organisation of the Year. The prestigious award was presented on Saturday, October 28th, at a glittering ceremony held in Edinburgh.

The Black Scottish Awards, which aims to acknowledge and honour those who are making a significant difference in Scotland, featured several remarkable finalists. Among them were Passion4Fusion, BE United, Igbo Community Aberdeen, African Students Association Scotland, and Jambo! Radio Scotland. Each finalist demonstrated exceptional dedication and commitment to their respective causes, contributing to the vibrancy of Scotland’s multicultural society.

While all the finalists showcased remarkable achievements, BE United received special recognition for their outstanding advocacy, nurturing, and celebration of Black individuals working in the performing arts and screen cultural events sectors.

However, the ultimate accolade of Community Organisation of the Year, a category sponsored by TSB, was presented to Jambo Radio Scotland. Our organisation has emerged as a beloved platform for Scotland’s Black population!

During the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic, Jambo Radio Scotland played a vital role in disseminating crucial information, thereby contributing to saving lives within the community. Their active engagement and responsible broadcasting served as a beacon of hope and support during the crisis.

Furthermore, Jambo Radio Scotland’s impact extends beyond the airwaves. In less than two years, the organisation has witnessed remarkable growth and created numerous employment opportunities. They have been instrumental in empowering young individuals by supporting them in returning to formal education. Recently, they successfully concluded a six-week Youth Broadcasting Training program, catering to kids aged 10 and above. This initiative aimed to empower young voices, instil communication confidence, and equip them with essential skills for the future.

The Black Scottish Awards expressed their admiration for Jambo Radio Scotland, stating, “Jambo Radio Scotland has become the place to tune in to over the last few years, delivering original content for the Black population of Scotland. From talk shows to music, education to debates, they have become a part of our everyday lives. They were very active in disseminating information during COVID and thereby saving lives. We celebrate Jambo Radio Scotland today, TBSA’s Community Organisation of the Year!”

This recognition serves as a testament to our unwavering commitment to serving the Black community in Scotland. It highlights our dedication to promoting culture, education, and empowerment through dynamic initiatives.

As the recipient of the Community Organisation of the Year award, Jambo Radio Scotland continues to inspire and uplift, making a significant impact on the lives of individuals and the broader Scottish community as a whole. Their achievements stand as a shining example of what can be accomplished through passion, dedication, and a commitment to community service.
