Rothwell honours 'tireless' volunteers of the year - picture special from first event

The winners were invited to a prize-giving ceremony

Those who make a difference in Rothwell have been honoured in the town’s first ever volunteer of the year presentations, hosted by mayor Ray Davis.

Nominees gathered at the Market House with VIP guests to witness the awards ceremony last night (Tuesday).

As well as an overall winner, two other groups were recognised for their hard work.

It is hoped the event organised by Rothwell Town Council will be held every year.

Don McColl was named as overall winner with litter pickers Pam and Andrew Norris, and Irene James and Laurie Johnson of Heroes charity shop, given special awards.
