Heroes in the Community 2015
The 2015 Awards returned to The Empress Hotel on November 14th, putting the Isle of Man’s everyday ‘superstars’ in the spotlight!
The sold-out ceremony had a black and gold Oscars theme, with winners, their guests and members of the local business community treated to a glamorous evening fit for Hollywood.
Entertainment came from local superstar songstress Coral Amphlett and Heroes-favourites The Soul Suspects made a welcome return to the stage to finish the evening off in style!
Along with recognising Island’s everyday ‘superstars’, the gala event also raised a massive £30,000 for Dream Catcher!
