This episode is one big THANK YOU to those people across rural Scotland, and the food and drink economy, who’ve gone above and beyond during COVID lockdown. We speak to people who have scrambled to keep their communities fed, given an extra push for charities, or just continued their vital jobs in difficult circumstances.
There are 6 stories in the episode – all people we wanted to say thanks to. It’s not even the tip of the iceberg of people who deserve praise. So please tweet the people you’d like to say thanks to in rural Scotland, using #unsungheroes.
