A NUMBER of local unsung heroes have been honoured at a special event at Webbs’ The Enchanted Gardens.
Members of the community were invited to nominate inspiring individuals for their selfless commitments to helping others throughout the year.
Webbs selected those chosen to enjoy a VIP event with their families which included festive treats such as bratwurst and hot chocolate.
They also embarked on a wonderful journey through The Enchanted Gardens, a magical light trail where fairytales come to life.
Ed Webb, owner of Webbs Garden Centres, said: “The past year has been challenging for so many people, and yet there are always individuals that go above and beyond to help others.
“We wanted to celebrate these wonderful people and give them the recognition they deserve.”
A number of spot prizes were awarded during the evening, including two prizes for the ‘Most Festive Families.’
The main prize of the night was given to a very special hero Vinne Mason, who was recognised for his amazing positive outlook and bravery facing every day with a smile as he fights Leukaemia.
Vinnie’s mum Jennifer Wincott added: “We attended Webbs VIP Enchanted Gardens on Friday evening, where Vinnie was honoured to be awarded overall hero on the night.
“We had such a lovely evening, just being out of the house and hospital.
“It was really special, Vinnie could be a five year old for a few hours, enjoying the evening with his sister whose life has also been impacted massively.”
Ed Webb added: “It’s become a tradition at Webbs to open the festive season with our Local Heroes event. It was a great night and as always it was our pleasure to give something back to the local community as we mark the start of the Christmas countdown!”
