ACHIEVEMENTS of unsung heroes from across the north have been recognised at an annual awards ceremony.
Carers, school janitors, public sector frontline workers and children battling life-limiting health conditions were among this year’s prize winners at the Highland Heroes award ceremony held at the Kingsmills Hotel.
The ceremony is unique in that it is voted for by the people of the Highlands and highlights ordinary people from across the area who show extraordinary courage, dedication and willingness to help others, often with no thought for themselves.
Prizewinners this year came from all walks of life, many of whom had never been to an awards ceremony before.
For one trophy-winning mum, Claire Munro she took time away from her two-year-old’s hospital bedside to make a dash to the awards ceremony, before rushing back to him on the ward to sleep beside him.
Inverness cycling charity Spokes for Folks was named the champion of champions after a public vote of more than 8000 readers of the Inverness Courier.
