Heart of Lincolnshire Community Awards 2018

Help celebrate the heroes in the Lincolnshire community.

Heart of Lincolnshire Community Awards 2018

Hosted by Lincolnshire Media

The Heart of Lincolnshire Community Awards 2018 celebrates the people that can be considered heroes because of what they do to give so much to their causes and communities. With the awards now in their 3rd year, it will once again concentrate on the individuals who have made a significant contribution to each of the award categories.

District champions will also be honored from East Lindsey District, West Lindsey District, North Kesteven District, South Kesteven District, Boston Borough, City of Lincoln and South Holland District.

So if you know a child of courage, a fundraiser, volunteer, carer, an unsung sports hero or even just a great neighbor, there are 9 special categories to get involved in and give them individuals the recognition they deserve


Child of Courage

This award looks for a young person – aged 18 or under at the closing date – who has triumphed over adversity, carried out a brave act or fought against an illness or disability.

Charity Fundraiser

The chosen charity fundraiser will work tirelessly to enable the provision of support and services for a charitable cause. Being awarded with this means that the person has been recognised for making an exceptional effort to advance the profile & raise funds for a particular concern.

Volunteer of the Year

We want to hear all about the armies of dedicated volunteers who devote hours to helping people for no financial reward; they want to help the people out there in the community who struggle for the basic necessities of life.

Sports Unsung Hero

We are looking for all of the behind-the-scenes people who devote their free time to local sports, nurturing, as well as encouraging people of all ages & abilities.

Carers' Award

Do you know a carer of any age who devotes hours to looking after a friend or relative whilst at the same time trying to juggle the demands of their own life? We want to hear about & celebrate them.

Local Hero Award

This looks for someone who has carried out an act of bravery with no thought for themselves or helped tackle crime & anti-social behaviour in the area.

Community Champion

Is there an individual or members of an organisation – such as youth group, church, school, pub or company – who work tirelessly to make things better in their local area?

Good Neighbour Award

This will be awarded to someone who helps others living near them. Whether that be running errands, looking after those who live alone or just simply being a shoulder to cry on when times get tough.

OBAM Stairlifts

Obam has been established since August 2000 when Chris Butroid, Steve Butroid, Pete Morley and Lee Ogden came together to form the company. With a wealth of experience in the adaptations industry before the year 2000 through engineering and technical know-how, they have taken the company from a desk in a spare bedroom to a multi-million pound business based just outside of Lincoln. After initially focussing on just stairlifts, recent years have seen the product range increase to include ramping solutions, hoists, through-floor lifts, steplifts and others.

Covering an area from South Yorkshire/East Riding of Yorkshire in the North to Northamptonshire in the South and from Derbyshire in the West to East Anglia in the East, Obam provides a full installation service over its product range with service and maintenance facilities on the stairlifts, TFLs and hoists. A family-run company with focus on high levels of customer service and support, we work on the philosophy to find the right solution for you as a customer at competitive and affordable prices. We offer a free, non-obligatory survey and everyone is more than welcome to visit our showroom in our premises in Sturton-by-Stow.

Oldrids & Downtown

We are an independent retailer based in Lincolnshire, with stores throughout the county. Originally founded in 1804, we have over 200 years of experience and a vast wealth of knowledge to help you find the perfect product for you, your home and your garden.

Between our stores, we sell a wide range of furniture, women’s, men’s and children’s fashion, cookware, electrical appliances, home accessories, toys and even garden furniture and machinery. Plus, all of our stores have a café or restaurant, serving delicious hot and cold drinks as well as hot food and snacks. We think it's the ideal way to refresh after a busy day of shopping.

YMCA/The Showroom

The Showroom is a unique building, with a unique ideology...
A building in which a high tech Conference Centre resides under the same roof as a world class Youth Centre. Two points of access allow the centres to work in parallel with as much or little interaction as is required for your event.

The Youth Centre is a My Place funded project that offers young people the widest possible range of high quality activities and co-located support services. The Conference Centre exists to support the Youth Centre, whilst simultaneously providing Lincolnshire with an inspiring and accessible business facility. We utilise innovative technology and multi-skilled staff to ensure that your event is successful, memorable and stress-free.

Our conference centre can cater for a range of events from meetings of 10 delegates to sit down meals for 150. A number of versatile spaces can be adapted to accommodate meetings, conferences, seminars, dinners, private parties, weddings and much more.
