The awards have been organised by Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service (LCVS) to acknowledge the vast amount and array of work done by the charities, organisations and individuals it works to support.

Nominations for the awards have come from LCVS teams in the four boroughs and districts where they are based.

Nominees and guests have been invited to attend the awards event at Blackfriars Theatre and Arts Centre, in Spain Lane, Boston, at 2pm on Friday (January 30).
