An award ceremony is being held to recognise the unsung heroes who go above and beyond in Brandon.
The Best of Brandon Awards, or the BOBs for short, will see five people rewarded for their presence and work in the community.
The event follows on from last year’s Tesco Brandon Community Awards.
Carly Wharf was the winner for her community efforts in setting up the group A.N.G.E.L.S (Autism Needs Guidence Education Love and Support).
Lianne Spooner, community champion for Tesco Brandon, has teamed up with Brighter Brandon and the Brandon Town Magazine to expand the awards to create five categories.
