Hildreds Centre in Lumley Road has received a Silver International Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Award for Community Commitment for the 'Age Has No Boundaries' campaign run last year.

The centre also received a Gold award in the 'Conservation and Wildlife' category for a Guerrilla Gardening campaign.

Steve Andrews, manager at the centre, says he is proud of its relationship with organisations and agencies in the county as well as customers.

"Both events were a year long commitment by the Hildreds and we had fantastic help and support from many local organisations and charities such as T.E.D in East Lindsey, Lincolnshire Community Voluntary Service, Mablethorpe in Bloom, The Skegness Eco Centre and Flourishing Families to name just a few.

"This is an incredible achievement by all concerned and I am so proud of the relationships the Hildreds has with not only the fantastic organisations and agencies throughout Lincolnshre but also our customers and friends of the Hildreds, who played a vital role in taking part in the community events and helped us to achieve this wonderful recognition.

"It has come just at the right time and shows how important it is now more than ever for communities and businesses to work together to better our town and surroundings."

There are more exciting events to come too. Steve added: "As the saying goes - you are only limited by your own imagination - and at the Hildreds we have bags of that!"
