The stories of a lifesaving doctor, a neighbour going beyond the call of duty and an inspirational fundraiser were among those heard at the first ever Mid Sussex Times Community Awards last night (Sunday September 22).
The video above shows some of the best pictures taken at the emotional event.
Hundreds of guests attended the ceremony at Clair Hall in Haywards Heath, where 14 individuals or groups were recognised for their role in the community.
The awards were presented by newsreader and television personality Fred Dinenage, who spoke to each winner in attendance on the night.
Speaking after the ceremony, Mr Dinenage praised the Community Award winners, saying ‘they are all heroes’ and expressing his admiration for the ‘incredible stories’ heard.
