The event, held at Samlesbury Hall, celebrated the employee of the year for saving a life, and also team of the year for improving communities.

It demonstrated more than 100 years of the Trust’s history, and commemorated the closing of the Trust, due to take place at the end of the month.

This year’s winner of the top individual award was probation officer Jeremy Lambert – employee of the year for changing lives.

He was awarded for his dedication after preventing an ex-offender from taking his own life.

Team of the year was awarded to a team from Preston Probation Office, who developed a range of initiatives to assist in the rehabilitation of those subject to supervision.

The team was instrumental in developing the Cubizm project in partnership with the Museum of Lancashire. Eight offenders engaged with a renowned graffiti artist to produce a stunning and highly prominent cube that is part of a long-standing law and order exhibition at the museum.

Kevin Robinson, chief executive officer for Lancashire Probation Trust, said: “This final ceremony was about celebrating our success, talents, the hard work and dedication probation staff demonstrate on a regular basis.

“Going forward probation will remain at the heart of what we do. Our work makes a difference, and it was evident from the awards that were handed out today.”
