Staff at Barrhead Travel are on cloud nine after enjoying success at a prestigious awards ceremony.

The firm scooped four prizes at the Sparkle Awards, run by the Scottish Passenger Agents Association.

Among those who were honoured was Jennifer McCartney, from Barrhead Travel’s branch at Silverburn, who was named Newcomer of the Year.

Jacqueline Dobson, president of Barrhead Travel, said: “We’re incredibly proud of our four team members who were publicly recognised at this year’s inaugural Sparkle Awards.

“Travel has had a challenging few years but the speed of the industry’s recovery can be attributed to the talented and hard-working people who are driving Scotland’s travel businesses.

"Together, we’re looking forward to supporting our customers as they continue to get away on their well-earned holidays.”

The awards recognised individuals for their contributions to the travel industry over the past year, with a formal ceremony held in Edinburgh.

Candidates were nominated by their supervisors and a shortlist was then assessed by a panel of experts.

Barrhead Travel also won the Agency Support Award, Leisure Consultant of the Year and Cruise Consultant of the Year.
