Outstanding and selfless individuals of Coventry, nominated by Telegraph readers, were honoured at the Belgrade Theatre last week. The Pride of Coventry Awards were presented by TV weather presenter Emma Jesson, and Free Radio Breakfast presenter JD.

ADECS’ Chief Executive, Amrik Bhabra, was pleased to be able to attend the event which celebrated the people of Coventry. The ten categories included Community Champion, Local Hero, Child of Courage, and Volunteer of the Year. For all the winners and their inspiring stories see the Coventry Telegraph website.

Messages of thanks and congratulations were received from David Cameron and Richard Branson. ‘These people show real dedication and strength in helping others in the community’ said Amrik. ‘They need to be recognized for all their hard work and efforts in the hope that others will be motivated to follow in their footsteps.’
