The awards are split into four categories – Volunteer, Achievement, Community, and Inspiration. Across these, there will be 22 individual awards presented, each sponsored by a local business.

Councillor John Briggs (pictured) cabinet member for Asset Management, Culture and Housing, said: “It’s not long now until the 2013 Community Champion Awards and I’m sure it is going to be a wonderful evening. Last year’s awards were a fantastic occasion and it was a great honour to be around such inspirational people.

“The awards are a great way of bringing the local community together in celebration of all the good things in North Lincolnshire.
