So proud of community champions
THE GOOD deeds of people across the district were celebrated during the Mail’s Pride in Harborough awards night.
From the villager who delivers medication to her neighbours, to the young team who revitalised a skate park, the fundraisers whose annual event has netted nearly a million pounds for charity, to the four-year-old boy who was a model of calm when his baby brother had a fit – there is so much for our district to be proud of.
The tales of bravery, hard work, achievement and caring must surely have brought a lump to even the most hardy of throats at the Three Swans Hotel’s Cromwell Suite, which was packed for the event last Thursday.
Pick up a copy of this Thursday’s Mail for photos of all the winners and runners up in the event and a full report.
Guests first sat down to a three-course meal before the winners and runners-up were announced.
Representatives of the businesses which generously sponsored each of the categories took to the stage to present the prestigious cut-glass trophies to the winners and certificates to the runners-up.
Mail editor Brian Dodds, who was master of ceremonies for the evening, said: “This was the fourth year we have run the awards and each year I am more and more amazed by the wonderful people who make up our community. There are so many people working selflessly to make the district a better place and the Mail’s Pride in Harborough awards is all about giving those people recognition and thanking them for enriching the lives of others.
“Our judging panel had an extremely tough job picking a winner in each category and all those nominated deserve praise.
“I would like to thank all of our sponsors, whose financial support enables us to publicly celebrate those people who are at the heart of this great community. I would especially like to thank the Market Harborough Building Society, which is the overall sponsor of the event.”
