Ricky Parkinson was nominated in the Lifetime Achievement Category and attended the ceremony – which inspired him to write the following poem

Went to ‘Our Stars’ ceremony

Down at the Marquee

Dave Guest was the compere

From the BBC

There were a lot of people there

From all over town

Some were dressed casual

Some ladies wore a gown

Awards for volunteers

Who do it for no pay

They do it cause they care

‘You can’t take that away’

Thanks to all the people

Who do it cause they know

Without those volunteers

There’d be no place to go
