The Robert Burns Humanitarians

Since its formation in 2002, the Robert Burns Humanitarian Award has recognised the dedication, celebrated the selflessness and paid tribute to the sacrifice of each recipient of the award - all exceptional people with incredible stories to tell.

The 2021 winner of the Robert Burns Humanitarian Award is Mark Williamson.

Mark is the founder of 'Sweet For Addicts', a non-profit recovery-based theatre group based in Glasgow.  On receiving the 2021 RBHAtitle, Mark said: "I would like to congratulate everyone who was nominated, I was stunned to find myself a finalist in such company as Dr Varatharajah Thurairajah and Dr Alexander Paterson and to win this award is a real honour. I accept this and dedicate it to all who have worked with Sweet for Addicts and to those we have lost along the way.
