New businesses involved

Each year the Community Champion Awards receive sponsorship from local businesses and this year even more businesses have got on board to show their support.  Without the support of local businesses the awards would not be possible.

New to the Community Champion Awards for 2017 are Hornsbys Travel sponsoring Sports Achiever of the Year, Paul Fox Estate Agents sponsoring Young Carer of the Year and Mi Living sponsoring Community Project of the Year.

Nick Hornsby, Managing Director at Hornsbys Travel said:

“We are very excited to be part of the North Lincolnshire Community Champions Awards.  As a local family firm we are proud to be the new sponsor of Sports Achiever of the Year award and we are looking forward to learning more about the nominees and the great activities taking place in our area.”

Paul Fox of Paul Fox Estate Agents said:

“We are extremely honoured to be offered the opportunity to sponsor the Young Carer of the Year Award. We feel these young people are an inspiration to us all and we are privileged to be part of these awards to recognise their ongoing commitment and selflessness in caring for others.”  ​

Steve Cunningham, Branch Manager at Mi Living, said:

“We might be a new business in town but we have followed the stories of North Lincolnshire’s Community Champions over the years and can’t help but be blown away by the courage, determination and sheer grit of those nominated. To now have the opportunity to be part of this event and join others in applauding the great people of North Lincolnshire is something we are very proud to do.”

Get in touch and nominate if you know someone who deserves an award:

  • for the time they have dedicated to volunteering
  • to recognise their personal achievement in overcoming barriers of excelling in sport or the arts
  • for the work they’ve done in the local community
  • for being a true inspiration to others
