STAFF at Barnsley College have been handed awards for their hard work.

Over 175 people were nominated for the awards and a team of judges picked a winner for each category.

The Staff Star Awards were held in the college’s Zest restaurant where the winners were given their prizes.

Raychel McGuin, a marketing officer at the college, won the Unsung Hero Award.

She said: "It was really nice to have been nominated for this award by my colleagues and the Staff Star Awards are a fantastic way to get recognised for the work that all of us carry out."
