Emma Tatlow CEO at Active Lincolnshire commented:
"The quality of nominations for this year’s awards has once again been outstanding and our judging panel had a difficult job to select the three finalists for each award from all the inspiring nominees! It is wonderful to learn about the incredible work that is going on across the county, and hear the inspiring stories of individuals and organisations who go above and beyond to help keep Lincolnshire active, and have such a positive impact on people's physical health and mental wellbeing.
The awards are an opportunity to say thank you to organisations, volunteers and staff, who have shown great dedication and commitment to helping others to keep active over the past year, as well as recognising those individuals who have used physical activity to make a positive transformation in their own lives. We look forward to meeting all the finalists at the awards ceremony on the 3rd November and celebrating their achievements.
I would like to say congratulations to all our finalists and thank you to our award sponsors who are supporting this year’s event.”
