The High Sheriff of Norfolk paid tribute to volunteers in a ceremony at King’s Lynn’s St Nicholas Chapel.

The evening began with a performance from local band Jessie’s Ghost before James Bagge addressed   the volunteers, their families and civic dignitaries.

Guests from voluntary organisations across Norfolk were invited to the celebration and some spoke about the invaluable support they provide and why they choose to volunteer.

The Bishop of Norwich the Rt Rev Graham James also paid tribute to those who gave up their time to help others.
