Formby Labour Activist David Campbell was given a special award by Ed Balls at the dinner to recognise his community activism.
David is a leading member of Formby Labour Action Team and the award was presented to him by Ed Balls on behalf of Ed Miliband.
Ed Balls said: "David is a tireless member of the Formby Labour Action Team and this award is in recognition of that work which he does for his community."
Sefton Central Labour MP Bill Esterson praised David.
Bill said: "For as long as I've known David, his work for his local community has been tireless. Nothing is too big or too small for David and he will and does put in hour upon hour working for the interests of the people of Formby.
"He is an inspiration and I am delighted that Ed Balls and Ed Miliband have taken the time to recognise his dedication."
David said he was honoured to have been given the award at the dinner.
David said: "I wasn't expecting this at all. I simply put in the time and effort because, like the rest of my Labour Action Team colleagues, I love our community.
"So to be recognised in this way by Ed Miliband and Ed Balls and my Labour colleagues in Formby and throughout Sefton is indeed an honour."
