The Great Big Thank You Awards

The Express & Star asked you to tell them about the outstanding and selfless individuals and groups across the region who make a difference to the people around them - and usually don’t expect any recognition for what they do. And you did. Thank you!

A panel of judges has selected the finalists in the eight categories and they will be revealed this Thursday - so get ready to vote for your favourites!
