The Stars of Suffolk 2014 aims to recognise the unsung heroes within our community.
We have had nominations from every district in the county, highlighting the bravery of those who have dived into an emergency situation without a second thought for their own, and those who have fought a personal battle to achieve something the rest of us would take for granted.
Our finalists, and their guests, will enjoy a glittering award ceremony at Suffolk New College on Thursday where we will name the community champion of 2014, Suffolk’s unsung hero and young person of the year.
In total, there will be 15 winners on the night, including the overall Star of Suffolk award, but already, each and every one of our nominees is a Star of Suffolk.
