Suffolk: Heroes of our county are honoured at Stars of Suffolk awards

16:02 10 February 2013


COMMUNITY champions and the unsung heroes in our county have been honoured at the annual Stars of Suffolk awards ceremony.

Hundreds of guests packed into Suffolk New College, Ipswich, on Friday night as the tales of dedicated and courageous individuals were told.

The event saw 16 awards given to people from a range of different backgrounds.

Teenager Rhys Joseland picked up the overall Stars of Suffolk award for his selfless actions in rescuing a woman who was attacked in her home by a man.

The 15-year-old, of Stowmarket, was walking to school when he heard screams. He went into the house and managed to get the man away from her.
