THERE are many unsung heroes living and working in our community.
And last night was a chance to shout out about them at the annual Examiner Community Awards.
Every day there are people who go out of their way to make the lives of others that little bit easier – from running voluntary groups to raising thousands of pounds for local charities.
Last night prizes were handed out to 12 people whose achievements we think were truly deserving of an award.
There were many runners-up too, and their dedication should not go unacknowledged, for everyone who attended the glittering awards ceremony walked away knowing their community was truly thankful for their efforts.
Many people think newspapers are full of doom and gloom, but here at the Examiner we work hard to make sure the good work of people is highlighted.
Today we do just that.
Well done to all those nominated and who won – we’re looking forward to next year’s awards already.
