The Heart of Your Community Awards is back in North East Lincolnshire

You can nominate the unsung heroes who make a difference in our community for the Grimsby Telegraph Heart of Your Community Awards 2019.

The Grimsby Telegraph are looking for a new set of deserving people and organisations to be nominated for this year’s awards.

Last November, the Humber Royal Hotel hosted the annual awards ceremony, which saw fundraising couple Brian and Betty Marsh crowned overall winners.

The couple have worked tirelessly for more than 20 years, raising money for the Humberston Hydrotherapy Pool which helps children with severe physical difficulties.

The judges, Grimsby Town manager Michael Jolley, the mayor of North East Lincolnshire councillor Hazel Chase and Gill Ross, of the John Ross MBE Community Trust Fund, said the work by Brian and Betty had been “inspirational” and had touched the lives of countless children and their families.

The awards provide an excellent opportunity for local companies to partner with the Grimsby Telegraph and GrimsbyLive to celebrate the people in our local community.

This year, awards will be presented across 12 categories, with an overall winner determined by a panel of judges.

Nominations can be made in the award categories for Emergency Services, Mental Health and Wellbeing, Young Sports Star, Friend/Neighbour of the Year, Inspiring Youngster, Community Project of the Year, Local Hero, Child of Courage, Charity Champion, Community Sports, Carer of the Year and Volunteer of the Year.

Community groups and other organisations from across the area are teaming up with North East Lincolnshire Council to host their own Skip It events this summer.

People brought everything from mattresses and washing machines to garden clippings and fence panels – most rubbish was recycled or sent to the energy from waste plant to generate electricity.
