Lincolnshire Chamber launches local initiative to celebrate unsung business heroes

Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce is launching a local initiative to help celebrate and recognise the unsung business heroes across Lincolnshire.

The Chamber is looking for businesses who are going that extra mile during the current crisis, those companies adapting their production line to manufacture critical PPE, helping local NHS hospitals and care services or lending a hand to support the more vulnerable in the local community.

“There has been so many fantastic stories from businesses across our county, and they just keep on coming, but often they aren’t always recognised in the way they should be, which is why we have decided to launch our Business Heroes initiatives,” explained Simon Beardsley, Chief Executive at Lincolnshire Chamber.

A separate recognition, working in partnership with TED East Lindsey, is to recognise those businesses who have adapted to supporting the over 50s.

TED works to reduce isolation and is designed to empower and connect individuals, helping to create sustainable change in communities.

Commenting on the initiative is TED Programme Manager and Director of Communities of YMCA Lincolnshire, Amy Thomas: “We are delighted to support Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce in recognising businesses with our interest in those in particular who have adapted to supporting the over 50s in their communities during this current crisis”.

Nominated businesses will have their good news shared on the Chamber website, social media channels and in the monthly Lincolnshire-wide Chamber Matters magazine.

There will also be an opportunity to be invited to a special celebratory dinner at Sessions Restaurant (part of Lincoln College Group), when times allow, to share your experiences and successes.

Simon added: “No matter how big, small or unique the gesture, we want to hear from you, share your stories, supporting and highlighting the tremendous efforts and achievements of businesses across our community.”
