We received some great nominations this year from our readers so thank you to everybody who took the time to nominate.
Such was the quality of nominations it was a challenging task for our judging panel to whittle them down to a shortlist.
The Sunshine Awards are sponsored by Wright and Lord Solicitors and the winners will be announced at our Gala Dinner on Friday May 6 at the Midland Hotel in Morecambe.
Wright and Lord Solicitors said: “Morecambe Bay is a proud, thriving community and has shown true resilience over the last couple years.
"We understand how important it is to acknowledge those, who through their extraordinary actions in supporting this community, have shown the true spirit, strength and character of its people.
"We are delighted to have been given the opportunity once again of supporting this wonderful event and look forward to finally celebrating the very best of Morecambe.”
Special guests on the night will be Daragh Carville and Catherine Oldfield, writer and producer of ITV crime drama series, The Bay.
