Marc Jones,

Police and Crime Commissioner Lincolnshire

“Safer communities for our residents is a top priority for my office but I recognise how important the public are in helping us to create and sustain that security.

There are hundreds of amazing volunteers who give their time and energy to help protect their neighbours, vulnerable people or whole villages and towns.

I hope supporting this award will enable us to shine a light on those volunteers and their work and give us an opportunity to recognise their efforts.”


Chairman’s Charity 2019

Each year the Chairman of the Council selects a charity to raise money for. This year the Chairman, Councillor Susan Waring has chosen to support Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance. Any funds raised through the NK Community Champion Awards will go towards this great cause.



Chairman's Charity - Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance

The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance is one of the UK’s leading Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) Charities, funded purely by the generosity of people like you! We are not part of the NHS and not funded by the Government.

At a time when every second counts, the arrival of our iconic yellow helicopter really can mean the difference between life and death.

We transport the equivalent of an A&E department to people suffering from the most serious of illnesses and devastating injuries, providing the best possible treatment as quickly as possible.

Finalists announced

Some of the best examples of voluntary community endeavour characterising life within the District’s communities are to be rewarded through the annual NK Community Champion Awards. 

Following the judging of around 100 nominations made from within the local community across the 10 award categories, the 30 finalists are this week all learning of the esteem placed in them by the grateful recipients of their thoughtful actions.

Every year North Kesteven District Council calls for people living and working in the District to nominate those whose endeavours carried out quietly, tirelessly and selflessly they feel are worthy of recognition.
