Cllr John Briggs, chair of the Community Champion Awards Committee, said:

“Every year I am truly inspired by the wonderful stories we hear of people going above and beyond to help others and achieve great things. Shortlisting the nominations never gets any easier as they are all deserving winners. Without the help of the sponsors in the judging process it would be a mammoth task. I’d like to say a big ‘thank you’ to them.

“Congratulations to all nominees and good luck to those who have been shortlisted. It is going to be a brilliant evening that highlights the community spirit in North Lincolnshire.”
