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.
The young people of The Street scooped the Scarborough News People’s Award and Peasholm Park Friends were victorious in the Hertiage and Environment category.
Cllr Mallory said: “We have some really special people and great individuals in the community.”
