A big thank you to all those community heroes out there

Have your say

One of the things I do want to mention that I learned in 2014 was the huge amount of work that goes on in our area to help other people.

You may remember I asked for help in choosing a charity to raise money for by completing the Great South Run. I was then inundated with e-mails.

There’s a lot of bad news on the television and in the papers about the stuff people do to each other and that will never change.

But it’s nice to see the other side – the time and effort people put in either to help people directly or raise a stack of cash for charities.

People like that are in The News every day.

So if you’re one of those people, those community heroes, I’d like to say thank you to you – for everything.
