Community heroes from across the District were recognised at a glitzy ceremony for the 2022 Pride of Tendring awards.
Those receiving awards came from a wide range of organisations and charities from throughout Tendring, and received their accolades in front of more than 200 people at a glittering ceremony at Clacton’s Princes Theatre on February 11.
The event was organised by Tendring District Council (TDC) to throw the spotlight on some of those who do so much in the community.
The awards were this year supported The East of England Co-op and the Princes Theatre.
Entertainment was provided by Stagestruck Academy, magician Danny Lee Grew and local pianist Amy Henshaw.
The recipients were all nominated by Tendring District Councillors.
Councillor Jeff Bray, Chairman of TDC said the 19 recipients do what they do for no reward.
“They are thoroughly deserving of the accolades, and it is a small thank you for everything they do for our society.” he said.
“Each and every one of them has made a real difference and they represent a wide variety of groups and organisations from our district.”
“This unique event, now celebrating its 10th anniversary, has during those 10 years, recognised a substantial number of individuals and groups for the work they so unselfishly do. What a privilege it was to meet some of the people who do so much to make our district the great place that it is. Truly humbling.”
The Master of Ceremonies for the evening was County Councillor Alan Goggin.
