- Good Neighbour
- Voluntary Group

Cllr Helen Howell, Chairman of East Northamptonshire Council said:
“I know there is amazing community spirit, volunteers and compassion in East Northants and the past few months have really shown this. So I have decided to take the opportunity to recognise our East Northamptonshire Champions by asking residents to nominate groups or individuals that have gone above and beyond in their kindness, generosity and community spirit.
“If you know someone who you think deserves to be recognised, then please head over to the ENC website and nominate them.”
