A Huntingdon charity shop has launched its own new year awards to recognise people who have made a contribution to the community.

Huntingdon Oxfam Books & Music has set up the Huntingdon People of the Year awards and will be offering prizes to the winners.

Geoffrey Stalker, manager of the book shop, in High Street, said: “There are a lot of amazing people in Huntingdon who make fantastic contributions to the community and we feel that they should be recognised.”

The first prize is a £50 Pizza Express voucher and Oxfam Books & Music is offering a £20 voucher to the runner-up.

A judging panel will be set up and include Mr Stalker and Huntingdon’s deputy mayor, Cllr Steve Mcadam.
