A brilliant evening: Best of Lancashire Awards sponsored by Booths at Crow Wood Hotel & Spa Resort, Burnley

There were tears, laughter, applause and plenty of dancing as more than 200 guests attended the second Best of Lancashire Awards at Crow Wood Hotel & Spa Resort in Burnley.

Hosted by entertainer and vocalist Jordan Williamson, and with key sponsorship from Booths, the glittering ceremony recognised Lancashire people really making a difference and celebrated with a proper Lancashire party.

With the help of some of our fantastic sponsors, every guest enjoyed a goodie bag on their chair, and a lovely four-course meal.

Winners celebrate at the Best of Lancashire awards 2022

Lancashire Post editor Nicola Adam said: "It was an emotional night with proper heroes from our community, it's so lovely to be able to give them the recognition they deserve. Thanks to all of the category sponsors and of course proper Lancashire supermarket Booths in its 175th anniversary year!"

The final award of the night - Lancashire Ambassador - was given to BBC Radio Lancashire's John Gilmore, a well known voice of the soundwaves for the past 35 years and a huge advocate for Lancashire.
