BBC Make a Difference Awards have been handed out at a ceremony to honour people and groups who have made a difference to their local communities.

BBC Radio Norfolk’s Make a Difference Awards were staged at Norwich City Football Club’s stadium.

A fundraiser who organised a convoy to Ukraine and a neighbour who helped a man who lost his family were among eight winners.

The station said it was “absolutely delighted” to recognise them all.

Acting executive editor Anthony Isaacs said BBC Radio Norfolk had received hundreds of nominations.

“Many of the people and groups do this without recognition or reward, so it’s wonderful they are able to have a night where their hard work and dedication is celebrated,” he said.

Make a Difference was set up at the start of the first Covid lockdown in March 2020 as a virtual notice board for people offering help and those needing support.
