Cllr John Briggs, chair of the Community Champion Awards Committee, said: “I was delighted to be a part of the 10th anniversary of the Community Champion Awards.

“Judging the nominations is the difficult part, choosing between a group of such worthy winners who have all achieved truly inspiring things.

“I’d like to thank all the sponsors for taking part in the judging and helping shortlist the nominees and thank you to those who took the time to nominate someone.

“Congratulations to all this year’s winners and to every single one of the nominees. I feel proud of our community and all the nominees should be proud of themselves.

“It was a fantastic evening had by all. The Community Champion Awards really do highlight what a fantastic place North Lincolnshire is.”
