Unsung heroes from the community and business sectors have been honoured at a special awards ceremony in Birmingham which aims to recognise people who “go that extra mile” and inspire others to do the same.
The Multicultural Business & Community Champion (MBCC) awards took place at the Eastside Rooms in Woodcock Street on Saturday 6th November, paying tribute to unsung heroes from the region and beyond in a star-studded ceremony.
Speaking about the winners, Tru Powell, the organiser of this year’s MBCC Awards, comments: “The stories of our winners are incredibly humbling and their tireless work to improving the world we all live in is nothing short of awe-inspiring. It is truly an honour to be able to pay tribute to their commitment and achievements through the MBCC Awards, and give these heroes the recognition they so truly deserve. Every single one is an inspiration to us all and I know I speak on behalf of all of the MBCC Awards judging panel, ambassadors, and guests when I say a huge “well done” to them all.”
As well as the award-winners, the event, hosted by famous faces Alex Beresford and Leah Charles-King, also saw performers take to the stage, from music stars including singer-songwriter Lemar and MOBO award winning gospel singer Lurine Cato MBE.
Bringing together over 700 guests together – the largest number in the event’s five-year history – the awards paid tribute to individuals who have gone over and above within their work in the corporate and community sectors over the past year.
FYC was proud to sponsor the Lifetime Achievement Award in which Maureen Lewis was crowned the winner for her years of voluntary work in Walsall.
