The Heart of your Community Awards

The Heart of Your Community Awards is an annual event to recognise the remarkable and inspirational people within our community. They celebrate individuals who have done extraordinary things – some have saved lives, cared for others, raised huge sums for charity or have made a real difference to their communities. Others have faced adversity or illness with great courage. Since the event launched we have celebrated some remarkable people ranging from the ages of 6 to 90. These prestigious awards provide an excellent opportunity for local companies to partner with the Grimsby Telegraph and Grimsby Live to celebrate the people in our local community.
