Ian meets his 2017 'Charity Champions'

What a fantastic afternoon meeting with some of the excellent winners and runners up of my Wansbeck Charity Champions competition.

Well done to the ladies (and gents!) from Team Susie, our overall winner! The work you have all done to raise money and awareness for cancer causes is inspiring.

Thanks to Robin from hilltop farm animal sanctuary for the work you have done in our community and congratulations on your award.

Steve from SHAK and his passion for dogs, has led to him helpings hundreds of abandoned animals. Well done for all your work!

I will be getting the remaining awards out to our other two runners up ASAP. Thank you to everyone who nominated and voted, helping me celebrate all the fantastic work done by volunteers in our local area!
