Have your say

There’s still time for readers to nominate someone they feel deserves to win a pair of tickets to an event at this year’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The tickets have been gifted by the Scottish Government as a thank you to those who’ve worked hard to create a Games legacy for Scotland.

All we ask is that the person you nominate meets at least one of the following criteria:

- is a young person (this can include Team Scotland supporters, and those involved in sport at school, community or club level)

- makes sport happen, including volunteers

- makes a contribution to their communities, through volunteering or other means

- is someone without the opportunity to experience the Games, or is from a disadvantaged group or has a disability

Just write a statement about your nominated person (maximum 500 words, but it doesn’t need to be a lengthy piece by any means), detailing why you feel they are most deserving of the pair of tickets, and send it to The Buteman, 5 Victoria Street, Rothesay, Isle of Bute, PA20 0DW, or by emailing news@buteman.com. Please include the nominee’s name, address and contact telephone number, as well as your own contact information.

The deadline for nominations is 4pm on Friday, April 25.
