Our invited guests were:

* Deputy Chief Constable Sarah Crew, Avon & Somerset Police

* Mr Adam Tutton – Chief Executive Officer of the Community Trust at Bristol Rovers

The evening was a huge success. As well as the ceremony itself, we had live entertainment from Dildar Singh and his band RSVP – and  a vegetarian buffet was served.  After this, people were free to network and socialise.

Thank you to Bristol Rovers Football Club for hosting & sponsoring the evening. The Awards were organised in partnership with Community Access Support Service (CASS), Rethink Mental Illness Bristol, LinkAge Network, Bristol Community Development Team and Counter Extremism Team of Bristol City Council.
