THERE were tears, there were cheers and there were dozens of memorable moments.
The 2013 Pride of Hartlepool awards were absolute proof that our town has talent, courage and warmth by the bucket load.
And here are some more of the fantastic photographs of the people who made the night at Hartlepool Sixth Form College extra special.
On a night of glittering ceremony, the town’s bravest, kindest and most selfless people were awarded.
Here is a chance to catch up on a few of the photographic memories of the evening.
And watch out for even more in a 12-page supplement next Wednesday, featuring interviews and pictures of every category winner.
In the meantime, anyone wanting to order copies of our photographs should visit www.northeastpress.newsprints.co.uk
