Top prize goes to 10k runner at Grome Gateway Club awards night
FROME Gateway Club has held its annual award ceremony for members with the town's mayor as guest of honour.
The event was held at the Trinity Church Hall for members of the club that supports adults with learning difficulties.
There were many winners on the night, including Becky Harrison who was presented with the Helper Award, Mark Hemmens who picked up the certificate for Best Dressed Pirate, Andrew Newlyn was given a second place certificate for best dressed pirate and John Breaden was given a third place certificate.
But the big winner of the night was Peter Hurle, who won the prestigious Joan Miller Achievement Award for completing the Frome 10k run in a decent time and raising funds for Dorothy House Hospice.
Club spokeswoman Ann Taylor said: "After a frustrating start to the day, with a missing entry form, Pete re-entered and re-paid to take part in the race.
"Many club members were there to watch him expertly complete the exhausting run in the very hot weather.
"We want to say a big congratulations to Pete, we are all very proud of you."
Mr Hurle was presented with his achievement award by mayor councillor Dickon Moore.
