The High Sheriff of Lancashire, Edwin Booth, has launched the 2022 High Sheriff’s Awards and is calling charities and community groups to submit their entries.

The High Sheriff’s Awards aims to reward the people and community groups in Lancashire who devote their time and energy to improving the communities in which they live and work, helping make Lancashire a better and safer place. There are four categories to recognise and reward people who have gone above and beyond to help their local communities.

Mr Booth said, “These awards are to recognise the drive and dedication of so many individuals and community groups across the country to make a difference. It’s been a challenging two years for everyone and so many people and community groups have stepped in to help make Lancashire a better place. If you know someone who has made a real difference, I urge you to nominate them.”
