ROTHERHAM’S Rainbow Project grabbed a handful of awards at the inaugural South Yorkshire LGBT+ Awards.

Three trustees and the group itself were named winners at the awards recognising high achievers involved in projects for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

Trustees Helen Goodson, Kirsty Fletcher and Nichola Goodson (pictured) were all nominated and Helen took both the inspirational role model award and the trans activist prize, while the Rainbow Project won the gong for best community group or network group.

Poet Carol Robson, also from Rotherham, was the toast of the evening, taking the lifetime achievement award.
