Volunteers across Mansfield have been honoured during the annual Mansfield’s Volunteer Awards.

The event, which took place at the John Fretwell Centre, Sookholme, was organised and led by a steering group of volunteers with support from Mansfield District Council officers and the Mansfield Community and Voluntary Service.

Mick Beresford, chairman of the Mansfield Volunteer Awards Steering Group, said: “The night was a great way of saying a big thank you to all Mansfield’s wonderful volunteers, who work so hard for their communities. These people really are unsung heroes, who deserve to be recognised.”

During the awards were given to the winners of six categories, with Craig Knowles, Joe Martin, Emilie Wright, Anna Cooke, John Coxhead and Mansfield Welfare Rights being honoured.
