THE an­nual PIP awards, now in their 15th year, paid trib­ute to peo­ple who have shown great brav­ery, com­mu­nity en­deav­our and abil­ity.

Some have climbed the high­est peaks of the Earth to raise money for char­ity.

Some have over­come a dif­fer­ent type of bar­rier, bat­tling health prob­lems or dis­abil­ity to suc­ceed.

While oth­ers have shown im­mense courage, putting their own lives at risk to aid those in dis­tress.

Ac­tor Antony Cot­ton, best known for play­ing Sean Tully in Coro­na­tion Street, pre­sented the re­cip­i­ents with their tro­phies and cer­tifi­cates at a gl­itzy gala pre­sen­ta­tion evening at the Hol­i­day Inn West in Thorpe Wood, Peter­bor­ough.

He had fun with some of the names of our towns and vil­lages, at one point ask­ing whether Oun­dle is pro­nounced ‘Un­dle’.

He said: “It was a lovely night and was very re­ward­ing to see so many brave peo­ple get the recog­ni­tion they de­serve.

“Some of the peo­ple on the stage tonight have done some amaz­ing things in their lives, and I was very proud to be here to present them with their awards.”

The ET was flooded with nom­i­na­tions for the awards when they opened in March and it was a tough task whit­tling each of the 10 cat­e­gories down to three fi­nal­ists. A win­ner was then cho­sen by a panel of judges.
