OUR QUEST to find the Greatest Glaswegian of all time continues – and we want you to tell us who should be number one.

Over the summer we are revealing the names of 100 men and women who have put the city on the map through sport, science, politics, the arts and more.

Most were born here, some moved here to work or study and have since made the city their own, opening the eyes of others around the world to its strengths and successes; and others have made such an impact on Glasgow that, despite having been born elsewhere, they are inextricably linked with the city, its people, culture and ideals.

Once all 100 have been announced, we will be opening our list up to a public vote, giving our readers the chance to determine who should be crowned Greatest Glaswegian.

Fearless lawyer Aamer Anwar has become famous for defending the human rights of the vulnerable.

Although born in Liverpool, he has made Glasgow his home ever since his days as a teenage student in the city; and his awardwinning practice in the heart of the city continues to secure acquittals often against the odds.

For more than 30 years, Aamer has dedicated his career to standing up for civil liberties, and he has been instructed in some of Scotland’s highest profile cases. He is probably most famous for the unrelenting 17-year campaign for justice for murdered waiter Surjit Singh Chhokar and the case involving exiled Catalan politician Clara Ponsati.

Founder of the Glasgow Children’s Holiday Scheme, Lilias Graham helped to transform the lives of some of the city’s most deprived children and families.

Although English-born, the community worker from the Gorbals understood the problems of her adopted city inside out. She was determined to live among the people she supported, and moved in to Abbotsford Place in the mid-50s when the area was notorious, full of decaying tenements and extreme poverty.

Realising many children never got a break from their surroundings, she contacted churches in rural locations, asking if they would find host families who could take a Gorbals child for a week or two during the summer holidays. The GCHS was born.

Over the years, the scheme has grown to offer static caravan breaks as well as volunteer host families, and activity breaks for youth groups.

Last year, still relying entirely on grant funding and donations, it gave 566 children a holiday. With almost a third of children in Glasgow living in poverty, Lilias’s legacy remains as necessary, and her impact as powerful, as ever.
