Sheffield conservation group bags cash prize for hard work

Have your say

A Sheffield conservation group has scooped a £5,000 prize after its hard work was recognised at the Yorkshire Bank Spirit of the Community Awards.

Friends of the Blue Loop, which looks after Sheffield’s canals and rivers, was one of 12 to be commended for members’ work at the awards ceremony in Leeds.

The funding awarded will allow two extra volunteers to join the group every month.
