Stars of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey shone brightly during a huge community awards ceremony this evening.

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’s silence was held prior to the event to remember former Big Thank You winner Luke Coles who recently lost his life in a tragic road accident.

Cllr Helen Mallory, mayor of the borough of Scarborough, then handed out a plethora of awards, including double triumphs for Leah May Hunter, from Whitby, and Spencer Kelly.

Leah won the Mayor’s Award and the Charitable Fundraising honour.

Eight-year-old Spencer was successful in the Max Payne MBE Award and the Courage Over Adversity title.
