Volunteer name:
Morven Mackenzie

Main duties:
Overseeing all aspects of the event from signing up the third sector organisations to selling sponsorships, programming the entertainers to managing the communications around everything

Why support Celebrate Aberdeen:
I wanted to do something that supported the third sector as a whole and thought a parade might be a good way of showing its importance to the city in a really visual way. That’s how it all started in 2011 but it’s grown arms and legs since then!

Favourite activity:
As a working mum of three – who also heads up Celebrate Aberdeen, the planning of which starts in January – I don’t have much spare time alas, but the time I do have is always best spent in the company of friends

Favourite quote:
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.
