The Voluntary Award was presented to Valerie Corfield, of Trimpley, near Bewdley, who has raised tens of thousands of pounds for charities over the past five decades, while Nicola Matthews, from Worcester, won the Business Award. She set up the Spray Tan Cubicle Company in December 2004. The firm is now associated with Strictly Come Dancing and the Brit Awards.
