Thursday night was one to remember for Dearest Scotland, one of Snook’s side projects. Cat, who is the voice behind Dearest Scotland, picked up her second journalism award for the project at the 2015 Scottish Student Journalism Awards, hosted by BBC journalist and broadcaster, Jane Lewis.

Awarding Cat with her prize for Dearest Scotland in the Multimedia Story of the Year category was former Herald Scotland digital editor, Calum Macdonald, sponsored by the National Union of Journalists Scotland.
