It was a wonderful evening that I am honoured to be part of. Every year I am in awe of the amazing and selfless things people do and it makes you realise just how important the Community Champion Awards are in recognising this.

“Congratulations to all of the winners and runners-up. You should all be very proud of yourselves.

“Thank you to the team for organising the Community Champion Awards, The Baths Hall for their help and to all the sponsors that continue to support us year after year. The awards wouldn’t be possible without them.
