EDP West Norfolk Chief Reporter Chris Bishop handed out the award for Good Neighbour whilst Hannah and Adam from the KLFM breakfast show presented the Young Inspiration to Others category.
The nominees for the awards were put forward by tenants and Freebridge employees. The winners were chosen by a panel which included tenant, board, employee and independent representatives.
Tony Hall, Freebridge’s Chief Executive said: “Once again, the Freebridge Tenant Awards have given us the opportunity to recognise those individuals who are making a difference within their communities, and to Freebridge.
“It is always a pleasure to meet the winners and nominees who are showing such generosity, commitment and support to others, all on a voluntary basis. On behalf of everyone at Freebridge, I am delighted to have the opportunity to say ‘thank you.’
