COMMUNITY STARS AWARDS, 2017 

This year’s Community Stars ceremony took place at the Midland Hotel in December. It was a fantastic evening celebrating the work of Bradford’s unsung heroes. Bradford has some truly inspirational people who give their time and energy for free to help others in less fortunate circumstances.

From amazing fund-raising efforts to being there to support neighbours to producing resources to support new mums – the awards recognise the extraordinary things done by local people. The award programme is supported by the Telegraph and Argus and Better Start, Bradford.
