A team of ambulance cadets came together for the first time this year as they were recognised for their hard work throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ely St John Ambulance cadets took part in the Grand Prior award, where they study various topics, including first aid, over the course of the year.
Junior and more senior members were given bronze, silver and gold awards for their efforts at the event, which took place at the Ely Outdoor Sports Association on July 14.
