Lord Lieutenant of Perth and Kinross Stephen Leckie

The Lord-Lieutenant of Perth & Kinross, Stephen Leckie, has sent his congratulations to the Perform in Perth volunteers.

“I could not be more delighted for all the volunteers at Perform in Perth, and I send them all my sincerest congratulations for this award and grateful appreciation for all they do. This is truly wonderful recognition for the team and I am sure our new Provost will join me with his congratulations.”

“It is a great reflection on Perth and Kinross that we have such dedicated people as these volunteers in our community, prepared to give so generously of their time, to prepare and run the music festival, particularly during recent difficult times and adapting to an online platform last year. The Perform in Perth volunteers are hard-working, modest, selfless people, leaders, who inspire our young people by providing an opportunity to showcase their talent.”

“For 100 years they have encouraged and nurtured mainly children, but not exclusively, with music and the performing arts. For all Perform in Perth have contributed to Perth and Kinross, and further afield, they are worthy recipients of Her Majesty’s recognition with the award of a QAVS.”
