As these pictures show, groups of Sheffield people have worked in Covid vaccine centres, cleaned up the city, stayed active, volunteered to help others and done all manner of activities for charity.

One of the biggest events this year was the Bears of Sheffield sculpture trail, which managed to cheer people up and get them out exploring the city while also raising the money to upgrade the Sheffield Children’s Hospital cancer and leukemia ward.

But there’s lots of small acts of kindness taking place too that often go unnoticed. If you want to celebrate some local heroes, just drop an email to [email protected]
