This project celebrates the work of exceptional people & organisations in Sunderland.

We all know someone who puts their all into their work day after day - or who goes the extra mile to help out members of their community - or who gives their all to a charitable cause they really care about.

“Stars of Sunderland” is our way of saying “thanks” to those people who go above and beyond, and who deserve to be talked about.
