The recipients included Louth Police Cadets who regularly attend public events and shows and raise money for local charities and the Neighbourhood Management Trusthorpe Community Garden working party who have worked tirelessly to transform an unused piece of land into a community garden.
Ladey Adey, Lincolnshire CVS's chief executive said: "Lincolnshire CVS's Voluntary Sector recognition awards are such a wonderful way of celebrating the extensive and varied voluntary activity that takes place across Lincolnshire.
"Lincolnshire CVS are proud to organise and host the awards and hope to encourage more people to get involved in volunteering in their local communities."
