Bradford’s Community Stars had their chance to shine at a packed awards evening.

More than 30 finalists were in the running for the ten categories recognising those who go above and beyond to help others.

Ten winners were revealed at the event on Wednesday, December 6, and a lifetime achievement award was also presented.

The annual Community Stars Awards are organised by the Telegraph and Argus and Bradford Council to honour local people who set an example to us all.

Marking the event's 13th year, the event took place at the Bradford Hotel and included new award categories.

Each of the winners received the Bradford Medal.
