“It is inspirational to see the contribution of the men, women and children of our area and to be able to contribute in some small part to celebrate their achievement is fantastic.”

This year’s Best of Wearside Awards also has backing from headline sponsor BGL Group, along with sponsors Calsonic Kansei, Northern Railway, Gentoo and Stagecoach North East.

We thank them all for getting on board.

Meanwhile, the deadline to enter Best of Wearside Awards competition entries has now passed and the panel of judges have drawn up a shortlist.

We will be announcing the shortlist in the next few days. Those who are still in the running after that point will then learn their fate at the glittering grand finale on Thursday, March 28.

Watch out for more details on that coming soon.
