Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant, a sponsor of NKDC Community Champions Awards

Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant was one of the sponsors of the North Kesteven District Council’s Community Champions Awards, alongside other local businesses and organisations.  The Awards were held on October 21st.

A record number of awards were made in recognition of the extraordinary levels of community spirit shown throughout North Kesteven.

Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant, which itself won a Community Champions Award in 2015, sponsored the
Contribution to a Better Environment Award. It went to Friends of Mareham Pastures, Sleaford – a small volunteer group which over 13 years has transformed an old tip into a much-valued nature reserve.

Matthew Igoe, General Manager of the Plant and Murray Paterson, UK Biomass Manager at Glennmont Partners (the owners of the Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant) presented the Award.

The Awards event was held at The Venue, Navenby, and was attended by more than 150 guests.

As well as celebrating community spirit, the event raised hundreds of pounds for NKDC Chairman Cllr John Money’s charity St Barnabas Hospice and heard from District Paralympian Kieran Tscherniawsky about his experiences at Rio 2016.
