They go above and beyond to support people with cancer in their community, and now their hard work has been recognised with an award.
North Norfolk-based volunteers, the Macmillan Neighbours, have been honoured by Macmillan Cancer Support's annual volunteer awards.
Diane Evans, one of the neighbours, said the team was delighted with the award.
She said: "We all love what we do and are very proud to be Macmillan Neighbours. We have all made many new friends while volunteering and have had a lot of fun too.
"Sometimes it is quite emotional helping people with cancer, especially when they have just been diagnosed but we hope that the service we offer with our drop-in centres and our telephone line provide a safety net for people at a very difficult time in their lives."
The award will be presented at the National Gardening Scheme's Walcott House during Volunteers Week, which starts on June 3.
