Judges have praised the entrants after the shortlist for the one of the categories was unveiled.

The Random Act of Kindness category at the Lichfield Live Community Awards is sponsored by the Friends of Friary Grange.

Chair of the judges Paul Groves explained that the category had proved particularly emotional for the judging panel with so many outstanding examples of human spirit on display.

“There were some amazing entries for this award and each of the shortlisted nominees were responsible for some truly inspiring acts.”
