South Derbyshire CVS, Active South Derbyshire and South Derbyshire District Council present the

South Derbyshire Community Awards 2020

Sponsored by  Toyota Manufacturing UK Logo

 

Across South Derbyshire, people are quietly committing their time to make a difference to the lives of the people who live in the district.

The South Derbyshire Awards recognise, celebrate and thank the people who make such a difference in South Derbyshire and aim to raise aspirations and strengthen the relationships between communities, local charities and community groups and businesses.
 
This is the first of the South Derbyshire Awards, which, as a result of combining the Active South Derbyshire Awards and the South Derbyshire Community Awards is enabling South Derbyshire CVS, Active South Derbyshire and South Derbyshire District Council to work in partnership and hold one bigger and better award ceremony for the whole district.
 
The Awards are sponsored by Toyota Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd, South Derbyshire Partnership and the individual award category sponsors.
