You are a true hero!

That is the accolade Trevor Saunders is enjoying after scooping a free visit to see the latest Avengers film as a thank you for his voluntary role at a Great Yarmouth medical practice.

Mr Saunders, 52, has been a member of the East Norfolk Medical Practice’s Patient Participation Group for five years and has been named South England’s Local Hero by cinema chain Odeon for his community-minded ethos.

He has organised community information events to raise awareness of the practice and has set up food tin and blanket collections to help those less fortunate than others.

Mr Saunders was nominated for the Odeon awards by Dr Alisha Sheldon, who also praised him for his selfless and positive attitude.

His award saw him take 35 people to a special screening of Avengers: Infinity War at the Norwich Odeon.

Mr Saunders said he was humbled to have been nominated.
