STARS of the Scarborough borough shone brightly during a huge community awards ceremony.
Unsung heroes were rewarded for their tireless deeds in the Borough’s Big Thank You Awards at the Spa in an evening of high emotion.
A minute silence was held prior to the event to remember awards supporter Max Payne MBE who passed away last week.
Cllr John Blackburn, mayor of the borough of Scarborough, then handed out a plethora of awards, including double triumphs for Susan Atkinson and Susan Davies.
Mrs Atkinson won the Mayor’s Award and the Courage Over Adversity honour.
Mrs Davies was successful in the Scarborough Evening News People’s Award and the Heritage and Environment title.
Scarborough Maritime Heritage Centre scooped the Max Payne MBE Award and members of Ellie’s Fund - set up in memory of 14-year-old Scarborough pupil Ellie Othick-Bowmaker - were victorious in the Charitable Fundraising category.
Cllr Blackburn added: “We have some really special people and great individuals in the community.”
