Inspirational individuals and groups were honoured for their community work at the Our Communities Awards ceremony, proudly hosted by The Halifax Academy.

Co-ordinated by the North East Halifax neighbourhood team, the annual event celebrated those who, through their talent, hard work and community spirit, make a difference in the Park and Warley wards.

Lifetime Achievement Award winner - Denise KeenanThe winners were nominated for their varied contributions to the local area, from providing lunches for older people and helping others into work, to educating, campaigning and fundraising.

The Lifetime Achievement award was presented by Mayor of Calderdale Councillor Pat Allen to Denise Keenan, who has been involved in voluntary work in the Park and Warley Wards for over 30 years. Described as “the very backbone of St Augustine’s Community Centre”, Denise has provided support and advice to the vulnerable, building their confidence and encouraging participation in the wider community.

Contribution to Work and Training Award winner - Pavel Botos

The event brought together a diverse range of guests who, together with their friends and families, enjoyed a fantastic buffet and musical performances by students of The Halifax Academy.
