Heroes in the Community 2017

The 2017 Heroes in the Community Awards ceremony was held on 21st October at the Empress Hotel in Douglas and had a circus theme.  Winners, their guests and members of the local business community were treated to a fantastic show, with entertainment from local circus performers and live music from The Waltons.

The event raised a more than £8,000 for Dream Catcher so thanks to everyone who made it such a fabulous extravaganza!

Congratulations to the winners – you truly are all superheroes!
