A spokesperson for the centre said: “The news of being shortlisted has come as an absolute delight to the staff.

“The team at Lochter are looking forward to the possibility of winning this award and recognition for a lot of the hard work that has been put into the centre over the many years.”

Winners will be announced at a special ceremony to be held in Aberdeen’s Ardoe House on November 27.

All category winners will go on to the Thistle Awards which will be announced in 2016.
