Heroes of the community in Littlehampton have been rewarded by Morrisons as part of its Hope campaign.

Alison Whitburn, community champion at the Littlehampton store, has presented four awards to celebrate Moments of Hope. She said: "I was honoured to give out these awards. We have a great community."

People were asked to post nominations on Facebook for the People's Choice Award and the winner was Di Brown, known as Aunty Di, from Littlehampton Baptist Church's toddler group. Alison said: "People said she is so lovely and helps and volunteers in the community, as well as running the group."

The Organisation Award went to Rachel Hunt, who runs the OnPoint project, which provides free sanitary products to anyone who needs them.

Alison said: "She collects sanitary protection and we have a red box for people to donate. Rachel then delivers them for free to the community. In this day and age, with the cost of living, it’s very popular - it all helps."

The Hero Award was presented to Helen Bradshaw for her tireless community work.
